My current version of VB 3.0 can not do what I need it to do and I can not afford to buy VB 5.0. I need a program writen and formed into an "exe" file for me. This project is fairly simple. I need to basically show several Quick
Time Movies on this app. If you are interested, let me know and I will give you the details. Thanks a whole bunch.

Can you please write me a small program?

That is basicly it! This program must be full screen because it is playing full screen movies. That means no title bar, no maximize or minimize buttons along with restore. On the very upper left of the form, there needs to be 2 buttons, that are small. One to go to the next movie and one to go to the previous movie. When the movie is done playing, I would like it to hold the last frame until "Next" or "previous" is pushed. Escape key will exit the program. The movie names and order will be determined by a text file. The program will load up this text file, read the first line and consider it as the 1st movie. The different lines are just the paths of the movie. Second line, second movie and so on.
Sample text file: movie.txt
c:\movies\movie1.mov   -  this is the 1st movie
c:\movies\movie2.mov   -  2nd movie, ect
c:\movies\mov3.mov
c:\movies\mov4.mov

I suggest, but is your choice, load this text file once in the beggining, and put the paths in a array.

I tried to put as much detail as i could in this description. I can not thank you enough for doing this for me.

P.S. Add a comment once in a while letting me know your progress.

I dont need volume or pause controls. But I am going to need to run about 20-30 movies.

just use the code like this to load the paths
dim mov(0 to 100)
open "movies.txt" for output as #1
do while not eof(1)
   i = i + 1
   line input #1, mov(i)
loop
close #1

that puts the paths to an array so in the "next" and "previous" buttons:

sub next_click
m=m+1
call playmov(mov(m))
end sub

sub previous_click
m=m-1
call playmov(mov(m))
end sub

all you need to do now is play the movie that is stored in mov(m)

hope this helps!

Sorry, I am looking for movie files. Didn't I say "Quick time movies" in the original question?

Author

Commented:
oops,
open "movies.txt" for output as #1
needs to be:
open "movies.txt" for input as #1

Author

Commented:
Remeber, you dont need to write anything to the file. I will write in the file according to the amount a which movies I want. The program needs to just read thw paths in the file.
Hope this clears things up
