load image loadfromfile

When you click the start button. This get the current directoy and send to ret_file(). ret_file() gets the filenames and adds the directoy. show_image() displays the images with a pouse between them.
--> The problem is If we use ShowMessage() it works if not no image is displayed. It does not mater whot is in ShowMessage. ShowMessage("HI"); will work.
-->Got any ideas??
