I saw some feature in GGIS like adding a popup image which is quite useful. Can we have popup Image in mapinfo?

Hi Kitex,

The closest you will get to a popup image in MapInfo Professional is by using the hotlink functionality - if you click on the hotlink (pointing to the image) the image will be opened in an external image viewer.

Thanks but hot link will open new window :)  I want it as popup. I guess it's nice feature though.

Yes you can do this with mapbasic application.

add button to your application , and call this subroutine (example)

Sub About
if Not FileExists(ApplicationDirectory$( )+"Logo.TAB") Then
 Note "Logo Not Found"
 exit sub
end if
Open Table ApplicationDirectory$( )+"Logo.TAB"
sLogoTab = TableInfo(0, TAB_INFO_NAME)

Dialog Title "About" Calling Map_logo Width 220 Height 60
Control DocumentWindow ID 2 Position 140, 5 Width 80 Height 40
Control StaticText title "Author: me" Position 5,10
Control StaticText title "xxx" Position 5,20
Control StaticText title "E-Mail: xxxxxx" Position 5,30
Control OKButton Position 80,43

Close Table sLogoTab
End Sub

Sub Map_logo
Dim iHwnd As Integer
iHwnd = ReadControlValue(2)

Set Next Document Parent iHwnd Style WIN_STYLE_CHILD
Map from sLogoTab
End Sub
