From the web:

You need to create a timer control in Form. Backcolor - black color, Caption - empty string, ClipControls - False, ControlBox - False. Set AutoRedraw to True.

Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
Sub Timer1_Timer()
Dim X1 As Integer, X2 As Integer, X3 As Integer, X4 As Integer
Dim Y1 As Integer, Y2 As Integer, Y3 As Integer, Y4 As Integer
Dim StepX1 As Integer, StepX2 As Integer
Dim StepY1 As Integer, StepY2 As Integer
Dim MaxRandomX As Integer, MaxRandomY As Integer, times As Integer
Static LineCol As Long, TimesCol As Integer, color As Integer

Randomize                         'seed random number generator
MaxRandomX = ScaleWidth / 2                    'half width (starts at 0)
MaxRandomY = ScaleHeight / 2                    'half height (starts at 0)

LineCol = RGB(Rnd * 255, Rnd * 255, Rnd * 255)          'set current color to random (1 to 15)
X1 = Rnd * MaxRandomX              'set X1 to a random (0 to max)
Y1 = Rnd * MaxRandomY              'ditto for Y1
X2 = Rnd * MaxRandomX              'ditto for X2
Y2 = Rnd * MaxRandomY              'ditto for Y2

StepX1 = Rnd * 4 + 1              'set StepX1 to random (-2 to 2)
StepY1 = Rnd * 4 + 1              'ditto for StepY1
StepX2 = Rnd * 4 + 1             'ditto for StepX2
StepY2 = Rnd * 4 + 1              'ditto for StepY2

For times = 1 To 80            'do 30 sets of lines

X3 = ScaleWidth - X1              'calculate points for
X4 = ScaleWidth - X2              '4 lines
Y3 = ScaleHeight - Y1              '4 X values
Y4 = ScaleHeight - Y2              '4 Y values

Line (X1, Y1)-(X2, Y2), LineCol
Line (X3, Y1)-(X4, Y2), LineCol
Line (X1, Y3)-(X2, Y4), LineCol
Line (X3, Y3)-(X4, Y4), LineCol
Sleep 0.8

X1 = X1 + StepX1           'adjust with step value
Y1 = Y1 + StepY1           'ditto
X2 = X2 + StepX2           'ditto
Y2 = Y2 + StepY2           'ditto
Next
End Sub


Hope this is helpful to you. Is this easy enough for you to understand?
