Hi gbianchi

Thanks for the response.....

yah the file is there....
I solved it anyways thanks....
da problem was with the path name....

i just specified the img name and not the folder the pics are in...
once i included LoadPicture(App.Path & "\flags\samoa.jpg")....it works like a charm!!!

so cheers!
