Picture annotation LoadFromFile problem


User (Legacy)

Recommended Posts

I am creating a picture annotation using the LoadFromFile method.  When the

file is not read only, everything works fine. But when the file is

readonly, the LoadFromFile fails. We cannot ship the file with write

permissions because it is a picture of our company logo. Is there a way to

make the LoadFromFile work with our read only gif file?

Thanks in advance,

Diana Tetelman

I wouldn't mind using a different format, except that the documentation says

that only GIF files can be transparent and we need that ability. Is there

another format that allows transparency?

Thanks,

Diana
