Graphic Repaint / Refresh - Draws A Circle Using A Timer - Circle Gets Displays It Flickers

Jun 8, 2011

I have developed a program which continuously draws a circle using a timer. Now every time the circle gets displays it flickers and which is because i have used me.refresh. Is there any other way to avoid this flickering.

Here is my code
Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick

Me.sweepAngle += 1

If Me.sweepAngle = 360 Then

Use Timer To Draw Circle / Path?

Mar 17, 2009

I need to write some code which draws a predefined circular path (say 48pix diameter) and use a timer to delay it to show it being drawn. I need to use GDI+ to do this. My guess is on the Timer.Tick, I would set some Point value for the next point on the path, and then call Invalidate to raise the Paint event.

Change Colour Of Circle?

Nov 5, 2011

I have created a program that Draw a circle and then you can move it around a picturebox. I have made code so that it changes colour but instead of changing the colour of the circle already been drawn it creates a new circle which when you overlap the original circle with the new circle it cuts part of it.So what I wanted it to do when I change the colour of the circle it changes the colour of the circle already been drawn instead of creating a new circle.

[Code]...

Also I can't use the X and Y coordinate input to move the circle to the entered coordinates.

Display Circle That Follows Cursor ?

Jun 9, 2011

I am making a whiteboard program. So far I managed to generate the ability to draw lines and other small things. The problem is that I want to make a circle that follows the cursor to display what a dot there would look like. I am aware of the creategraphics property of picture boxes, but when I do that the circle stays there and a new one is generated where the mouse is now (an expected result). My question is, is there a way to draw and delete circles as the mouse moves. Also, is there a more efficient way of doing this. I did try using the OvalShape found in the power pack, but I cannot figure out how to display that over the picture box, when I right click the oval nothing happens.

User launches the application, enters width of circle, then enters width and height of rectangle and presses the button. Then app draws the circle with rectangle inside of it (if it fits). App should output the coordinates x1;y1 , x1;y2 , x2;y1 , x2;y2 (corners of rectangle) somewhere on form and would be great if it could post those coordinates on x and y axes (optional).

Make The Circle Bigger By +1 Til = To 55?

Feb 8, 2011

I am trying to do a do while loop to make a circle draw itself resized by 1 each time 50 times. I just dont know how to define the numbers that make up the circle size properties. here is my simple code

Me.CreateGraphics.DrawEllipse(pencolor, 135, 125, 5, 5)

I would like to just make a simple do while loop to adjust the 5,5 by +1. I am really new to programming and any help will be excelent. If I knew the property name of the 2 numbers I need to change I could declare them as a letter H & W and just do while

H,W is < 56
H+1
W+1

if this makes any sense?

Divided The Circle Into Rows And Columns And Each Block?

Jul 21, 2011

I have divided the circle into rows and columns and each block(square) formed in the circle is of equal size. I have the X and Y co-ordinates of each square/block. Each block is either defined as good or bad.

Problem: I need to add 2 blocks on the same row and determine if the result is good or bad. If any of the block is bad, the group of two block is called as bad. If both are good, only then group is good. what would be the algorithm for it? I need to do in visual basic language. Also, I need to do more cases like adding 3 blocks and determine if the group of 3 block is good or bad. In this, if any block is bad, the whole group is bad.

Update: When I divided the circle into rows and columns i.e blocks, I remove the blocks that are not in the shape of square. That is, those square/blocks which are touching the circumference of circle are deleted. I can upload the photo tomorrow now.

Interface And Graphics :: Draw A Circle On The Console?

Feb 28, 2012

I am trying to draw a circle on the visual basic console. I have been told that the console is not made for this but i have to use it.

What I want to do is a circle with:

Centre (40,20)
Radius = 10

I know from basic trig that the following will give me the points on the circle:

x= (10 x CosA)+40
y=(10 x SinA) +20
(A) being an angle in radians.

Then combine x & y that will give me a point on the circle.

I want to use the '' Sets the cursor position

Console.SetCursorPosition(x, y)
Console.Write(".") "

To print a point(.) on the given position from the formulas above.

Now heres my question how do I get Visual Basic too calculate:

x= (10 x CosA)+40
y=(10 x SinA) +20

360 times i.e 0rad-2Pirad and then pass the x & y [(x,y)] point to my cursor position code so that a '.' is printed at that position. I.e I will end up with a circle made out of 360 '.'

I would asume that a loop is used and also an array to store the 360 Pi values. I'm finding it extremely hard to even get Vb to calculate the Cos of an angle.
