How To Set Media Player To Fullscreen

Mar 29, 2009

I have created 2 forms: "Form1" and "Form2"....Form1 is MDIcontainer and it contains Form2. In Form2 I have inserted the windows media player OCX. When I run the program and try to set the media player to fullscreen (via command button) appears an error:
{"Errore irreparabile (Eccezione da HRESULT: 0x8000FFFF (E_UNEXPECTED))"}

Here's the
Public Class Form2
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.fullScreen = True
[Code] ....
If I open a new project and I copy the code and the media player it works! I think problem is when I use MDIforms.

Video On Fullscreen Mode?

Apr 13, 2010

I need to create a vb-application which plays video-files as a fullscreen mode on computer's external screen. At the sametime user must have control to these files on another screen shown on the computer's (laptop) own screen.

So far I have managed to open the videofile as a fullscreen mode so that user has to first drag the videopanel (not a problem in this case) to the another screen and then click the "Fullscreen"- button on the control-form. Now the problem is that when another screen is playing on a fullscreen-mode and user clicks the control-form on the main screen: the fullscreen-mode ends and the videopanel results to the video's actual size.

Is there any solutions to this? So I'd need to continue the fullscreenmode on the other screen while there are user actions on the main screen. I am using DirectX / AudioVideoPlayback by Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition. And yes, I am quite a newbie with VB-related things :)

Show An Image In Fullscreen-mode?

Sep 5, 2010

I'd need to show an image in fullscreen mode on my application when a music-file is being played. Is it possible to define a form and an image (picturebox) to be shown as a maximum size on the screen?One thing that makes it even more interesting is that I'd need to show it as a fullscreen mode on a external screen.

I can move the form to external screen like this:

Form3.SetBounds(2000, 112, Form3.Bounds.Width, Form3.Bounds.Height)

Flash Video Not Exit Fullscreen In WebBrowser Control On Pressing Esc

I have created a <acronym title="Visual Basic">VB</acronym>.NET project that includes WebBrowser control. The web browser control navigates to html page that embedes a flash movie. Everything works fine except that when I want to exit the fullscreen mode of the video by pressing (Esc) key, it doesn't exit. If I view the html page with any other browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, ...) it works perfectly. You can download the project from the link below. The files are in the Debug folder.

Supposed To Be Fullscreen In WPF Touchscreen Application Is Moving When Inner Listbox Is Scrolled?

Jun 30, 2010

I am writing a GUI application to run on a touchscreen device using VB.NET and WPF--it must be full screen at all times, like a kiosk app; the window must not be able to resize or move in any way. The window contains a ListBox that users can currently scroll through by dragging across the list. The problem I'm seeing is that when the user drags across the list, the whole window moves a bit, exposing the desktop underneath, then springs back into place once the user stops dragging. I have not been able to figure out how to keep the window stationary while still allowing users to drag across the ListBox to view all list items. Here is a somewhat simplified version of my code:

Game Programming :: Adding Pictureboxes To Form

Jul 23, 2008

I know how to make a single picturebox, but I need to make more different pictureboxes. Example: I want to make a picturebox every time snake and food crash (I'm making snake with pictureboxes, yes). But for that, I need a code that will make a new picturebox with different name every time they crash. For example When they first crash, the code should make a picturebox called snakepart(1) next time they crash it should make snakepart(2). Something like that.

Game Programming :: Disposing A Picturebox From A Form?

Jun 24, 2011

I've tried so many ways to get rid of picture boxes for my space invaders game, yet it's not working. The bullet hits the alien, the alien goes invisible (which it should) but it doesn't go to a new location or get disposed. And the bullet then intersects with it again but because it's invisible the user just see the bullet reset out of no where and the score gets added which it shouldn't.

Code:
If Bullet1.Bounds.IntersectsWith(AlienArray(0).Bounds) Or Bullet2.Bounds.IntersectsWith(AlienArray(0).Bounds) Or Bullet3.Bounds.IntersectsWith(AlienArray(0).Bounds) Or Bullet4.Bounds.IntersectsWith(AlienArray(0).Bounds) And AlienHitArray(0) = False Then

[code]....

So, basically my question is how do I remove aliens (pictureboxes) off the board or disabled the picture box in space invaders when they are hit. (my bullet collision works fine).
