    using borland c++ builder 6

    Hello,

    I am just starting to use borland c++ builder and I am not familiar with using the visual stuff. I've done c++ programming and I was wondering if someone who is familiar with borland could explain how to show an image after I run a function and it completes correctly. I already have a program running and I click a button and it runs a function. I want it to check if the function ran correctly and then display an image for correct and for not correct. I figure that someone who knows what they are doing in borland could tell me quickly "oh click this and this" and be done rather than me dig through manuals for hours.

    Thanks

    Wouldn't a call to MessageBox() or similar be an easier solution?

    It's been a few years since I used any sort of borland builder but I think a TPicture or TImage control may be what you're looking for.

    >>me dig through manuals for hours<<

    It would be advisable for you to begin this sooner rather than later.

    would it? see i am not very familiar with what the best thing to do here is. does a call to a message box just open up a message box saying it completed correctly? if so, then yes that will work. could you explain how to do that with in borland? in the function definition, after it completes, can i just put something like if(completes) MessageBox() or something? please elaborate on how to do this.

    thanks

    well this is really just a one time project sort of thing. i don't plan on programming too much more but this just kind of got thrown on me. i didn't write the original program but i am just trying to modify it so its more user friendly as far as feedback goes.

    Code:
    #include <windows>
    
    if (completed)
    	MessageBox(NULL, "", "Function finished successfully.", MB_OK);
