Did you want the picture to show up when you run the form? Or be able to select a different picture if needed?
If you want to have the picture to show up when you run the form, store the binary info of the picture in the PictureVal property at design time.
May I also suggest you use GETPIC() rather than getfile().

If I put this in the init of the image control, I can see the image

oPict = LOADPICTURE(GETPICT())
this.PictureVal = oPict
