How to bit blit to the desktop and erase (also, if worth the points, a quick explanation of form bit blitting)
Posted on 2001-06-15
I have been trying this for a little while and was unsuccessful. I would like to be able to blit a picture to the desktop, and erase it again. Like you see with microsoft agent, a lot of those deskmate characters, and other things like that. I would like to know how to blit to it, and also how to erase the picture. Also, I do not want to use an invisible form, or anything like that. Just a regular bit blit.
Also, if this is worth the 50 points, I would also like to know if I could get a quick tutorial on bit blitting to a form or picturebox. I can bit blit fine on a form, but when I use a picturebox for the source image, i can't make the picturebox invisible or the picture won't blit, and I can't draw the picture over the hidden picturebox or I get a different image.
If someone could help with the top one, and if possible, the bottom one also, i'd appreciate it. Thanks
