I am looking for a control which enables me to show png files stored inside the salesLogix database on screens inside the SalesLogix lan client. The existing image control deals with most image types but not png's and the field image displays correctly on crystal reports so the data is OK in the database
I have looked for other controls but either cannot get them to run or they give error messages, has anyone got a good activex control they can recommend?

No sample code.. it's just a simple display from a file in a browser.. but you will have to "code the control" so that on (AX)formChange you clear/load the browser (control).
Create a folder in the SalesLibrary to hold the files.. or you could put them in a blob.. and stream in/out (but that's a bit slow).. and more work.
We did this for a customer several years ago.. and it cost them a few $$$ ;-)

Thanks I can succesfully extract the png files from the dataase to the local file system and then point a browser control at this file.
The problem I have is the browser cannot handle png files and I have tried on a couple of other machines with the same result. If I convert the image to a jpg for example it will display fine it just appears the browser cannot handle png files.

Yes your png displays fine, so that must mean it is something about my png files
They are generated from an iphone signature capture
They display fine in google chrome and open in paint ok, do you want me to send you some samples of my png files?
