Jan 23, 2010

I have some operations of Picture Boxes etc being performed. After the user finishes with the formatting, I want to give the user an option to print the work.But its the work is not done on the Rich Text Box but on picture boxes. I am not even sure, how many of the picture boxes would be there after the user finishes the job, since I have provided option for dynamically creating picture boxes as well.

Sensing All The Picture Boxes On The Form?

Oct 9, 2010

I was thinking to include a feature in my application in which when Selects a mode from a menu, then we have to go each PictureBox on the form after a certain time. For eg: There are 5 pictureboxes (number not fixed since pictureboxes are created at runtime). When the user selects the mode, the Mouse goes to the center of each pictureBox periodically. The picture box that has focus should have a frame around it with a dark red color as shown in the screenshot clearly (

[URL]. The rest of the functioning is the same as for the application.

Controlling Picture Boxes Through A 2D Picture Box Array?

Aug 20, 2011

I have VS 2008 and use VB, not C#/C++ or whatever else. I'm trying to make a battleship game, and I've decided to use the only method I can think of to control the grid. A 2D boolean array for position marking. I have the array set up, and the grid set up in the design form, but I can't figure out with all my research how to link them together. I'm writing this program to shake off the rust before school starts again, and for fun. I took VB in school last year, a half year class, so I have a foundation, now I'm self-educating myself above and beyond the class. I've searched for a way to use a picture box array to use the coordinates of the ship to .Visible=True the picture boxes. I've been working on this for 2 days straight with no results. I just need a little nudge in the right direction. The exception I've been getting with my latest concoction of code is NullReferenceException was Unhandled. I think its referring to the fact that I have no idea how to link the picture boxes into the array. Here's my code, and I'll comment where the exception is thrown:

Private Sub cmdStart_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdStart.Click
'label for GoTo statements is Tryline:

Animation With 5 Picture Boxes?

May 4, 2010

I'm trying to create an animation with 5 picture boxes (labeled picturebox0 - picturebox4) but I have a specific order I want them to display. I made 5 picture boxes, added images to them, and stack them on top of each other.

I want the order to show this: picturebox 0, 1, 4, 3, 2, 4, 2, 3, 1, 3... etc

The code I have using if-else statements which would work if I wanted to repeat the same display pattern but I need to manually right the pattern... I have at timer set to change the pictures every 2.5 seconds.

Private Sub Timer3_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer3.Tick

Array Of Picture Boxes

Oct 6, 2011

I need an indexed set of picture boxes. The number, n, of these objects is determined at run-time.Migrating from VB6!! I had used the load command n times to create a control array from a "seed" picture box. In code the individual pictureboxes are accessed as formula(k), where formula was the name of the control array and k is an integer. Examples can be seen at url... the chemical formulae, Ni2+ etc., are draggable picture boxes (curve captions if you like), so that they can be placed wherever the user wants.How can I implement something similar in VB.NET?

Picture Boxes And Ovals

Jun 22, 2012

I want to creat a photo hunt for 6-8th grades summer computer camp. all I want to do is have them change the image in paint, then load the two images in picture boxes on a form. When I create the ovals to identify the differences in the images, they automatically are behind the picturebox.I can't figure out how to get the ovals to be in front of the picture box. I click the picture box and say send to back but the ovals are still behind the picture boxes. There is no right click on the ovals to send to the front. there has to be a simple answer for this. I also tried putting the images on the background but when I make the ovals invisible, they are not clickable and I cant set the border to 0.This was a no brainer in vb6.0

Creating Serialized Picture Boxes

Dec 27, 2010

I'm building a simple game which involves many pictureboxes with which the player may collide. For instance, I'd have a hundred bricks spread throughout the level. In an old version of pacman I built in VB6 (and upgraded to .net), I implemented this like so: [Code]

As I understood, the brick(I) array exists thanks to the naming of the bricks, which ranges from _brick_0 to _brick_217 (as nowhere in the project a brick array is declared implicitly, at least not that I could find). I'd like to do the same in my current project, but even when I duplicate an existing brick it automatically renames it to "PictureBox123" instead of _ExistingName_NextID.

I saw a method of declaring a picturebox array and adding the bricks one by one, but since I have so many pictures this would best be avoided (especially due to the fact that not all pictures are bricks, so I cant just loop through every picture in the form). In short, my question is: How do I duplicate pictureboxes so that they'd be serialized in a way would interpret as a picturebox array? As you can see, i'm a really newbie to and wf in general, just started studying wf a couple days ago for my B.Sc and even that was accomplished with c#.

Pattern - Lot Of Picture Boxes And If Statements - How To Use Arrays

Jan 17, 2012

I have found a major bug with this game Ive been working on for some time. The best way to make this game would of likely been by using an array. Problem is I dont know how to use arrays that well and I don't understand them. So I used a lot of picture boxes and If statements.

So here is the problem. When you click on the box its suppose to check to see if its a bomb or block. If its a block it busts the block, if its a bomb it will explode. Now here is the problem. Each block is not holding its own value or "block type" which determines if its a bomb or block. So when you click on a block and lets say it says its a bomb, the next block you click rather if its a bomb or not will explode. So its not checking the block value you click. instead its just grabing the last value generated. I will only show you short blocks of code because the code was written in a pattern form and it just repeats its self. If you post a reponse, remember im still newb and try to post samples/solutions using code ive given.

'Random Block Generator
Public Sub RandomBlockType()
Randomblock = New Random
SelectBlock = Randomblock.Next(1, 5)

Populate Random Number Of Picture Boxes?

Apr 18, 2011

I have a number of images that I want to select a random number of and populate that number of picture boxes either dynamically or that already exist but can't think of the logic that would do it.

I considered dynamically creating them but don't know of a way to name them uniquely. I tried using pcbx& a variable but it didn't like that.  Placing the image inside picture boxes that already exist, I couldn't think of a way to differentiate between them without what seemed excessive repetitive coding.
