Anyone know how to dissolve between screens in VB4 32Bit?

For example...after prog starts, I am sitting on my first screen -- When I click a command button, it brings up form number 2. Inbetween (and after the click) I would see a nice dissolve between the screens.

I have examples and information on how to do this for a bitmap, but not for a form.

Thanks in advance.

If you know how to do it on bitmap, you should be able to apply to form too since form has a picture property and also hdc property.

My answer is to have a picture load in the form and another in a picture box. Using bitblt, copy part of the picture box to the form. Repeat till the whole form become the picture of the picturebox. Hence this will create a dissole effect. Once the effect is done then show the second form
