Simple Animation with Visual Basic 2008


This is a simple and very cool animation with VB 2008 ***IMPORTANT*** To make this project work you need these two pics- a bat with its wings and an the other bat with its wings down. To get these pics go the following site img121.imageshack.us img5.imageshack.us After going to the link copy and paste the two pics into a directory (simply a place where u know it is like my pics) Public Clas frmMain Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick Static x As Integer = 5 Static y As Integer = 0 Static flip As Boolean = False If y Mod 2 = 0 Then Me.PictureBox1.Image = My.Resources.bat1_a Else Me.PictureBox1.Image = My.Resources.bat1_b End If if Me.PictureBox1.Left (Greater Then Sign)= 500 Then x = -5 flip = True ElseIf Me.PictureBox1.Left (less Then Sign)= 0 Then x = 5 flip = False End If If flip = True Then Me.PictureBox1.Image.RotateFlip(RotateFlipType.RotateNoneFlipX) End If Me.PictureBox1.Left = Me.PictureBox1.Left + xy += 1 End Sub End Class The next vid that i will make will show how make the naimation move using the arrow keys 🙂

Effectiveness of ASP.NET

Active Server Pages (ASP), also known as Classic ASP or ASP Classic, was Microsoft’s first server-side script engine for dynamically-generated web pages. Initially released as an add-on to Internet Information Services (IIS) via the Windows NT 4. 0 Option Pack, it was subsequently included as a free component of Windows Server (since the initial release of Windows 2000 Server). It has now been superseded by ASP. NET.

Developing functionality in ASP websites is enabled by the active scripting engine’s support of the Component Object Model (COM), with each object providing a related group of frequently-used functions and data attributes. In ASP 2. 0 there were six built-in objects: Application, ASPError, Request, Response, Server, and Session. Session, for example, is a cookie-based session object that maintains the state of variables from page to page. Functionality is further extended by objects which, when instantiated, provide access to the environment of the web server; as an example FileSystemObject (FSO) is used to create, read, update and delete files.

In order to evaluate and assess ASP. Net you have to first understand the acronym and then access the support provided. The full form of the acronym is Active Server Pages . Net. This dedicated Microsoft application has been developed to create web pages and wireless or internet enhanced Microsoft . Net web programming technologies.   ASP. net is rife with efficiency and effectiveness and forms an integral part of the software giant’s . Net vision. It is in this capacity that the . Net framework becomes indispensible to web programmers and developers. The end result created is dynamic and sophisticated. Continue reading “Effectiveness of ASP.NET”

How to generate a random number sequence that is non-repeating in visual basic .net ?

I am writing a matching program, and need 24 objects to randomly appear, each twice, across 48 spaces. I figured the best way for me to do this would be to assign the positions a number 1 through 48. but the problem is I can’t find a way to generate a random number sequence in visual basic 9 .net

I found many examples in visual basic .net but the conversion doesn’t work. If not some code, many some example programs that either use a random number sequence or randomly sets the position of objects.

Thanks.

When it is crunch time: Migrating from Visual Basic 6 to Visual Basic .Net/2005

Abstract

As a Visual Basic 6.0 programmer, what is the roadmap forward for your applications? As Visual Basic 6.0 becomes ‘deprecated technology’ what will you do with your enterprise class applications written in Visual Basic 6.0. This article is the musings of a developer that has been looking at migrating existing enterprise-class Visual Basic 6.0 applications to Visual Basic 2005.

Introduction

If you have been a serious Visual Basic 6.0 programmer with very sizeable code investments in Visual Basic (we have 22 enterprise level applications), at least 18 of which are written with Microsoft Visual Basic, crunch time comes when you begin to think or when you decide to advance your applications to new versions. Crunch time comes when all of a sudden, your Visual Basic 6.0 projects don’t open properly anymore in the Visual Basic 6.0 IDE (especially when running on Windows Vista with Visual Studio 2005 installed). Crunch time comes most especially when it dawns on you that you are basically using ‘deprecated’ technology, that between Visual Studio 6.0 (which contained Visual Basic 6.0) and Visual Studio 2008 (the latest version of Microsoft’s Visual Studio development suite), they have been 4 (four) new versions of Visual Basic.

Crunch time is the realization that for your software business to live, you will have to do something about your existing Visual Basic 6.0 applications. Our purpose in writing this article is to share our experiences of what we found as we endeavored to start to upgrade our Visual Basic 6.0 applications, and to discuss some of the touch decisions and choices that will undoubtedly have to be made.

Appraising the current Visual Basic situation!
