i am making a marriage bureau desktop application software and i have set 12 pictureboxes in a groupbox...i have set timer to change picturebox in groupbox but this does not feels impressive so now i am trying to give fade effect to these pictureboxes i tried a lot but not succeeded...
based on the code that jmcilhinney made this show all images found in the My Pictures Folder..Now, can someone give code on how could this applied with fade effect when changing the images from one to another..
Public Class Form1 Private imageFiles As String() = IO.Directory.GetFiles(My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.MyPictures)
I'm trying to make a picture box do a "fade in" effect. I just don't exactly know how to code it. The general premise is, in the main form's load event handler, I'd run a procedure so that when the form opens up, a picture will fade in. I have 20 copies of the same picture, each gradually less and less faded.I was thinking of cycling through an array of all the images with a timer control so it animates and fades in.
I have a picturebox and I have a image with a blue and red square. When I click a button it puts that image into the picturebox as background image. The background image property is set to tile. But when I click on my form to draw the image to it, it just draws the original not the one that has the tile effect from the picturebox. Is there a way i can do this to keep the tile effect?
I'm working on a scoreboard, and I'm want to add a goal horn. The way it works is when a button is being held down, the horn wav file is going, and it stops when the button is released. I can make a good loop file, but what I'm having trouble with is getting a fade in and fade out effect to make it realistic. I don't want to use the master volume controlbecause there could be other sounds playing at the same time. How would I do this?
I'm trying to use the Fade In/Out subs. Currently the fade in works perfectly. The fade out is the one I am having problems with. In my form's closing event:
I really think the problem is when it is calling for a "new object", but I don't know what to put in place of it to just work on the old object. I wanted to see if anyone has a solution to this issue, or perhaps an alternate solution that fades out just as nicely as the fade in.
I'm currently making a huge project. So huge it is split into four separate applications. I want the form to fade to black once the user logs on and only fade up when the new program has fully loaded. I've tried various methods, such as having the second program write to a file on the C: drive, then have the first program wait until that file exists to fade out.Is there a more efficient way? My method isn't working... the form will fade to black, but you get a glimpse of the desktop just before the new program launches (both are full screen apps btw)
In XP when you go to shut down, windows fades to black and white. I think that's a nice effect.How would i go about fading a color image (image box stretched - like a screen saver) to black and white...?
Has this ever been done? Is their a code snippet that already exsists?
I'm trying to make my form nearly transparent when the mouse is not inside the form by changing the opacity.I'm having trouble because if the mouse is moved quickly, I can't get its position accurately. when the mouse is moved into a control, it's considered to have left the form. Is there an easy way to do this that I might be missing?
Namespace CustomPanelControl Public Class CustomPanel Inherits Panel Public Sub New() MyBase.New() [Code] .....
Now I need to use it and make it fade in and out. This is a panel containing typical play, stop, FF, REW controls over a media player. Just like Windows Player or VLC, I want the panel containing the controls to fade out on mouse leave and fade in on mouse enter.
I'm trying to make an image fade in/out when the user hovers over the button. The fadein works when I enter the button but not when I leave it. How can I make this work?
Animation Code: Private Sub GreenBg_animation() Dim myduration As Duration = New Duration(TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(250)) Dim da As DoubleAnimation = New DoubleAnimation da.Duration = myduration Dim sb As Storyboard = New Storyboard [code] .....
Button code: Private Sub btn_2_MouseEnter(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Input.MouseEventArgs) Handles btn_2.MouseEnter GreenBg_animation() End Sub
I have created a custom user control. I place it on a form, and want to have it fade out to totally invisible in response to an event. I'm assuming I need a timer to adjust the opacity some how, but there does not seem to be an obvious opacity property of a user control, unlike a form. I can't use a form, so I have to get the control to do this somehow.
I would like to know if I can fade-in a image I would like to change it's opacity using a timer or so I want this for a splash screen at my application load time inspiration: those that know KDE (K Desktop Environment - Linux) splash at system logon
For i = 255 To 1 Step -1 MyPanel.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(i,Color.Red) Next
This will make the background color fade to transparent.The problem is, I don't want only the background color to change.I want to change the visibility / opacity of all the controls inside that panel too..
Wrote a custom stand alone engineering program to do some very basic repetative design calculations. This program also does pricing by taking each design element and asigning pricing to it based on the parameters given. All the individual elements are added together to get a unit cost. (All this works well without any problems or issues)
My eventual goal once I can prove that my changes work is to control the pricing by using the YEAR so that the program increases the cost by a set multiplier based on the actual YEAR the system is set for. ie: 2011 10% increase, 2012 5% increase, 2013 5% increase, etc.
I have fields with " monday, tuesday,wed, thu, fri, sat and sun". I am trying to add the hours of each day on a separte field " week total hours "..Everything works fine but say if i make any changes again to "monday hours" it does not take effect on " tot hours "
eg.. mon 2hrs, tues 1 hrs, wed 1 hrs, thur 0, fri o, sat 0 and sun 0, then the total hours is 2+1+1 = 4 and it displays well ....but if i change ( mon= 1 ) then it should be 1+1+1 = 3 but it remains 4
when adding picture to dynamic picturebox from my.resources in .dll a duplicate semi functional picturebox is added too, behind the picturebox i intended to add. has anyone seen this happening before or can provide any insight into this?
In VB6 I used some pattern of programming..I passed the picturebox as parameter to some procedure in some class and inside this procedure paint all needed graphics using this class methods.Now I want upgrade my application to vb.netBut all samples for line drawing show me how to draw inside paint event.[code]
I have a PaintEventHandler connected to a picturebox via AddHandler.
In PaintEventHandler I have coded this for writing the drawing to PictureBox1.Image:
Dim PictureBox1 As PictureBox = CType(sender, PictureBox) PictureBox1.Image = New Bitmap(PictureBox1.Width, PictureBox1.Height) Dim bmp As Image = PictureBox1.Image Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)
... drawing something ...
PictureBox1.Image = bmp
Everything works fine but after running through the paint event handler and showing the picture on the screen it calls the painthandler again and again. It does not stop.
Replacing the code above with
Dim g As Graphics = e.Graphics
Makes it running. But then I cant save the Image to a file.
