HI,
I am using the following code to have a form fade out to zero percent opacity, then fade right back into 100 Opacity when a button is pushed.  

I cant seem to shut it off after it fades back to 100 opactiy?

Also I need to change the form size to 200 by 200 using this code when the form is at 0 opacity

this.Size = new Size(200, 200);

But I am not sure where to put insert the code?


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsApplication1
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
           
        }
       // private String imgName;
        private DateTime dt;
        private Timer t;
        private bool fadeOut = true;

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
           
        }
     
        void t_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            TimeSpan ts = dt.Subtract(DateTime.Now);
            if (ts.TotalSeconds > 0)
            {
                if (fadeOut)
                {
                    if (this.Opacity > .0)
                    {
                        this.Opacity -= .01;
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        fadeOut = !fadeOut;
                    }
                }
                else
                {
                    if (this.Opacity < 1.0)
                    {
                        this.Opacity += .01;
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        fadeOut = !fadeOut;
                    }
                }
            }
            else
            {
                t.Stop();
                //this.Close(); // optional
            }
        }

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            dt = DateTime.Now.AddSeconds(100);
            t = new Timer();
            t.Tick += new EventHandler(t_Tick);
            t.Interval = 100;
            t.Start();
        }

    }
}

I think this is what you want... ???  i'm failing to see why you need a timer... can you explain?


private bool falseIsDown = true;
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            doFade();
        }

        private void doFade()
        {
            falseIsDown = !falseIsDown;
            double incrementAmount = .01;
            if(!falseIsDown)
            {
                incrementAmount = incrementAmount*-1;
            }
            double loopTimes = Math.Abs(1/incrementAmount);
            for (double a = loopTimes; a >= 0;a--)
                this.Opacity += incrementAmount;
            this.Size = new Size(200, 200);
        }

        void Form1_KeyPress(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            doFade();
        }

of course don't forget to add   this.KeyPress += new System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventHandler(Form1_KeyPress);
     to the initializecomponents thing

It fades nice but how about having it come right back to 100% Opacity?

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.

Meh... just thought id clean the code up a bit...

private int falseIsDown = 1;
        private void doFade()
        {
            falseIsDown = falseIsDown*-1;
            double incrementAmount = .01*falseIsDown;
            double loopTimes = Math.Abs(1/incrementAmount);
            for (double a = loopTimes; a >= 0;a--)
                this.Opacity += incrementAmount;
            this.Size = new Size(200, 200);
        }

        void Form1_KeyPress(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.KeyPressEventArgs e)
        {
            doFade();
        }

private void doFade()
        {
            int TimetoWait = 1000;
            int flipInt = -1;
            double incrementAmount = .01*flipInt;
            double loopTimes = Math.Abs(1/incrementAmount);
            for (double a = loopTimes; a >= 0;a--)
                this.Opacity += incrementAmount;
            this.Size = new Size(200, 200);
            Thread.Sleep(TimetoWait);
            incrementAmount = incrementAmount*flipInt;
            for (double a = loopTimes; a >= 0; a--)
                this.Opacity += incrementAmount;
