SUMMARY

An .FRX file is a binary data file used to store binary information for the form (.FRM) file with the same file name.

MORE INFORMATION

Some controls, such as the PictureBox and Image controls, have properties that use binary data as their values. Visual Basic stores the binary data in an .FRX file with the same file name as the Form file. The .FRX file is a proprietary format.

If your project contains .FRX files, you should include these files with the corresponding .FRM files. A form containing binary information but lacking the associated .FRX files will not function correctly.

REFERENCES

For a good description of what the .FRX file is and how it works, please refer to the Binary Property Values section of the Appendix A: Form and Project File Formats chapter of the Programmer's Guide.
