Default Page selection and object moving problems

:x Arg!

I have a a function that imports a graphic to a document, page and constraining box shape.

Basically it imports the graphic, scans for the placeholder, copies the placeholders dimensions and position and moves the imported graphic to take the placeholders place.

This works great in a one page doc, when I use it on a 2 page document I get unexpected results;

if there is only one import call on the second page, the imported image takes the shape and size of the placeholder but not its position.

if I repeat the same call previously, the old imported file and the new move to the correct position.

I think the page flip happens and the code execution is lagging behind the page flip or somehting like that. Any suggestions to make this work a bit more reliably?

Code:
Private Function GraphicsReplacer(Doc As Document, pagenum As Long, placeholder As String, filename As String)

    Dim zulu As Shape
    Dim picname As String
    Dim fs
    
    picname = filename
    
    Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    LogEntry ("Checking for external Media Files")
    
    If (fs.fileexists(picname) = False) Then
        picname = "c:\!mcp\!templates\pictures\placeholder.jpg"
        'LogEntry ("!!!!!!!!Warning: Missing Picture for this Property! [placeholder.jpg] used instead")
    End If
    
    Dim xx As Double, yy As Double
    Dim sx As Double, sy As Double
    Dim picshape As Shape
    
    
    For Each zulu In Doc.Pages(pagenum).FindShapes(Name:=placeholder, Type:=cdrRectangleShape)
        zulu.GetBoundingBox xx, yy, sx, sy
        Doc.Pages(pagenum).ActiveLayer.Import picname
        Doc.ActiveShape.Name = (placeholder & "_pic")
        DoEvents
        For Each picshape In Doc.Pages(pagenum).FindShapes(Name:=(placeholder & "_pic"), Type:=cdrBitmapShape)
            DoEvents
            picshape.SetBoundingBox xx, yy, sx, sy, True, cdrCenter
        
        Next picshape
    
    Next zulu
   
 End Function
[/code]

Default Re: Page selection and object moving problems

Wolfgang,

I cannot reproduce the problem. Could you please try to create a small self-contained macro that demonstrate it? I mean something that I can run on my system and it always displayed the problem?

From the limited tests that I did, it worked all the time. But I might not have done something that you were doing in your program... Anyway, if you can strip down your program to a state where it can just be run on my system and demonstrate the error, that'd be great!
