"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the ClipControls property is True in the Picturebox, then the other controls wil not be drawn over.


Private Sub Form_Load()
    Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("c:\windows\bubbles.bmp")
    Picture1.AutoRedraw = True
    Dim h As Long, w As Long
    Dim dx As Single, dy As Single
    dx = ScaleX(Picture1.Picture.Width, vbHimetric, vbTwips)
    dy = ScaleY(Picture1.Picture.Height, vbHimetric, vbTwips)
    For w = 0 To Picture1.Width Step dx
        For h = 0 To Me.Height Step dy
            Picture1.PaintPicture Picture1.Picture, w, h
End Sub

Thanks alot!  Maybe one day I can learn to program in VB.
You're welcome.

Please note a typo in the code:

 For h = 0 To Me.Height Step dy <<--  Should be Picture1.Height
