BannerBitmap Property 

Specifies a bitmap image (.bmp) or JPEG image to be displayed on a user interface dialog box during installation. The image is displayed in the banner area at the top of the dialog box, behind the banner text.

The settings for the BannerBitmap property are:

Displays the Select Item in Project dialog box.

Set this property by selecting a Setup dialog box in the User Interface Editor, then in the Properties window, select one of the above settings for the BannerBitmap property. You must add the file containing the bitmap to the project in order for it to be available in the Select Item in Project dialog box.

For best results, you should use a bitmap with dimensions of 500 pixels wide by 70 pixels high. Bitmaps with different dimensions will be stretched or shrunk to fit and may appear distorted.

NoteNote

The BannerBitmap appears behind any banner text in the dialog box; depending on text length, the text may cover up to the first 420 pixels of the bitmap.
