Write a slideshow screen saver using System.Drawing with transitions
Posted on 2004-11-22
I am new to VB.NET and would like to learn about the System.Drawing.*
I would like to do this by creating my own slide show screen saver using images from chosen directories and using transitions between slides. What I think I need to know how to do is:
1. Get an image ( as many types as possible, .gif, .jpg, .png, etc)
2. Scale to full screen without distortion and using anti-aliasing
3. Display by transitioning from previous image (or black screen if this is the first)
4. Repeat at interval
5. quit when mouse moves or key is pressed
If you could show me a simple transition, I could figure out how to do more.
I would also like to be able to do a confiuration screen and preview, like in most screen savers
Any help to get me in the right direction would be appreciated.
