HEJ EXPERTS :),

I want to build something like the following:

-A windows app that has a string let say 30 lines (reading from a file)
-outputting strings  to screen with a picture (that i can have path saved in string so no issue)
.Question is how I can SIMULATE powerpoint like writting by printing out character by character OR if this is very complicated i can stick to ONE LINE per go but there should be a delay between lines. PLEASE Help how to achieve this.
-I want to have a background music (one file) throughout the execution of the application. (I think it is something to do with threading)
Please help in achieving the above. Thanks

you can use a stream reader to read from the file using buffer
after each read you can make a delay using sleep(3000) fro 3 seconds and write the stream to the box area as per your choice(character by character or line by line).

For the playing of music you can use timer to reset when the music file ends.
