> Hello
> I have an Image control on a form and user selects an image file through GETFILE() option.
> But, we know that there are some image files(such as Bitmap, Png, etc), which does not have any Preview or of not correct/valid image files. In that particular case, the Image is not showing on the Forms Image control(means not loading the image properly), instead it's showing the Image control like in design view(with crossed lines).

Hi Bhandari,

I do not have such a file here for testing - but if I remember correctly, in similar cases the image.Picture property was empty here right after the GetFile() result assign. If so, you can perhaps do something like:
Local lcFile
lcFile = Lower(GetFile())
If Not Empty(m.lcFile)
    theImage.Picture = m.lcFile
    If Not ( Lower(m.theImage.Picture) == m.lcFile ) && invalid file
        && assign a placeholder picture here,
        && or a label.Caption saying something like "invalid file chosen"
