Synchronizing txt box & picture box 4 slide show & speeding up changing from 1 pb 2 another
Posted on 2004-04-16
I have an app that basically is a slide show, it works, however:
I have 2 form versions, one with group boxes & one with tabs
Because it takes time to load jpg to picture boxes I have 2 group boxes or 2 tab with picture boxes, whilst one is being viewed, the other is being loaded with 2nd picture, also the photo caption is either in a label or group box text.
when I set the slide show going, I get text appearing for the second picture before the last picture has been replaced by the 2nd picture.
What I want is a synchronised text with the picture & a snappy exchange from one picture box to the next.
ie: show picture & text together at the same time & switch from one group box or tab to another at the time the event is fired (sometimes it may be activated by a click event & it does not respond fast enough)
It worked fine in vb6 but trying numerous options in net, have eluded me so far.
Also after showing about 10 pictures, it just seems to get slower & slower.
Any help is much appreciated
