I am doing a pop machine vb program for fun. And I would like to see
the balance drops from the machine. For example, if I have a balance of
25 cents, then I will see 25 cents(images) drops from the machine,
is that possible ? How ? It will be nice if I have a sample.


Thanks !

Here is a quick and dirty method.  Not necessarily the best way to go about it, but it works.  Create a form and add a command button named command1, and a shape named shape1.  Then copy and paste this code to the form.

Option Explicit
Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim x As Integer

    Shape1.Top = 0
    Shape1.Visible = True
    While x < Me.ScaleHeight
        Shape1.Top = x
        DoEvents
        Sleep 50
        x = x + 100
    Wend
   
End Sub

You can control the speed at which it drops by changing the x +, and by adjusting the sleep.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
