How to make an ANIMATED Background ???
Posted on 1998-06-13
OK, I now know of two simple ways to add background textures to a VB5 Form.
In other words, I know how to add a textured background by putting pictures tiles on the form.
Now the hard question: How do I add an ANIMATED background to a VB5 form ???
I don't care to use any Draw techniques. I want realistic pictures to be cycled to make
an animated background.
My forms are small, about 1/3 size of screen. I had thought of the following:
Add 6 pcitures, one on top of the next. Then just cycle through these by setting the
Visible attribute on each picture. I think most buttons ect... will stay on top. I haven't tried this.
Any other ideas???
