Position A Messagebox In The Center Of MainForm ?

Nov 12, 2009

Is it possible to position a messagebox in the center of your MainForm instead of the center of the computer screen? This is really confusing for beginner computer users, if your mainform will be in the top left corner and the message box in the middle of the screen, it won't be very clear that the messagebox belongs to your application. (well to us it is, but not to old people).

Center Screen Sprite Walking?

Apr 27, 2012

I have been searching the internet for a few days now, looking for ways to solve my problem, but I can't find anything. What I am trying to do is make my sprite walk. The way I did this was I made multiple GIF's with my characters different movements, but when I try to switch which ones are showing by releasing an arrow key, it does not do anything. Does anyone have a solution for this? My code so far is below, but it only lets me switch to the running GIF and not to the standing one.

I know i've made a few posts previously on this, but none have fully worked. I now have my program doing everything I need it to do, except having the ability to display the text to the centre of the screen. It needs to be able to perform the same functionality it does on the form but without the form being there (e.g. the letter disappearing after being pressed)

[2008] Get Form To Appear On Top Of Media Center?

Jan 19, 2009

i have media center's "put media center always on top UNchecked, but it doesn't seem to affect how the program works if it's maximized. I have a custom media control interface with functions that change depending on an event such as holding the button in. To show the user what it's SUPPOSED to be doing, i've tried a few different ways to get a notification to show over the top of media center's screen.

1. Had media center's display notifications turned on and showed a balloontip in the task bar... NO EFFECT

2. Found a MCE Plugin i can shell to, but am unable to actually find a download site in english for it

3. Wrote a simple vb.net program to give a popup form to show text but it appears behind the mce window always, even when i have the form's "always on top" checked, and i even tried the setwindowpos api call, although i might not have used it correctly since i manually converted it from vb6.

My final attempt will be to send the keycommand to "restore" the media center window which will open up some screen real estate on the bottom and right, exposing part of my program's window that i can show text on.

Interface And Graphics :: Dialog In Center Of Calling Form

Jun 17, 2009

I've got a question and i think its very simpel but i don't get it.

I've got 1 form that is a MdiContrainer for other forms that i'm opening.

(lets say: the main program)

In the main program, i'm opening a form with a datagrid in it (configuration form). If i click on one of the data cels I'm calling a otherform as a dialog to edit some of the value's from the data cel thats just clicked.

But the problem is, when showing this form as a dialog, with the property startposition: Centerparent it displays it as in the center of the main program and not from the calling form. How can you correct this? Because i'want the dialog in center of the calling screeen.

dialog.parent = me: wont work

see attachment for the program.
