Re: [Pvx] button graphics - additional questions ...

From: Sam G <samg@...>

1) is there some directory that I can install those bitmaps in so I don't
have to specifiy a full path name?

2) it would seem intuitive that if the auto-dowload works for 'picture' 
should work for other controls as well. -

a) is there a list of which controls accept/don't_accept the autodownload?

b) it would be great to see it for 'all' controls that accept a graphic -
any timeframe as to when we might see it?

c) if i have the windx that was dnloaded from the pvxPlus site, will it work
with other formats such as .tif / .gif / .jpg?

d) recomendation: - if a button command fails - (such as in my submitted 
example) - would be nice if some error would be generated (error 11 maybe?)
rather then just doing *nothing*

thanks -

Sam
