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 🙂

Understanding Variable Scope and Duration in Visual Basic 6

Variable Scope

The scope of a variable determines where you can access that variable in your code. If a variable is in scope you can read or set it’s value. If it is out of scope you will not be able to access it.

There are three types of scope for variables in Visual Basic:

Global Scope
Global variables are in scope anywhere in your application. Module Scope
Module level variables are in scope anywhere within the module where they are declared. Local Scope
Local variables are only in scope within the procedure where they are declared.

Program a DVD PLAYER in VISUAL BASIC 2008 (Intermediate)

PLEASE visit my new Visual Basic Tutorials Website! www.vbtutorials.weebly.com How to program a DVD PLAYER in VISUAL BASIC 2008 (Intermediate). This is only intended as a guide to get you started. You can experiment by trying to make a menu button, eject button etc. NOTE If you try something on your program that the DVD doesnt support then your program is likely to crash. Go to this address to find out more about the “mswebdvd” component. msdn.microsoft.com Enjoy! ——————— This program can be a bit dodgy sometimes but be patient with it and you should get it to work. I hit a few problems when doing it. The program wont work with vista because of the different DVD components. Apologies for the poor video quality at the end, it was difficult recording the DVD video off the screen.

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


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.


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!

Querying Table Data Using Visual Basic Code in MS Access

In order to fully utilize the capabilities of MS Access, one must learn not only learn the Visual Basic (VB) programming language, but should also learn Standard Query Language (SQL). Once a grasp of these two languages have been obtained, MS Access users can begin to build faster and more efficient databases.

One tool that has proved itself very useful to me over the years is querying data from tables or queries using VB and SQL code. A brief introduction to this process is presented in this article. To best understand this process, an example is provided below along with an explanation of its parts.


Dim rstTemp As Recordset

Dim strSQL As String

Dim routeNum As Integer

strSQL = "SELECT [Route], [Main Route PM], [Intersecting Route], [IntBeginPM], [IntEndPM] “

strSQL =  strSQL + “FROM Intersections_list WHERE (((CStr([Route])) = """ + cmbRouteQuery + """));"

Set rstTemp = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL, dbOpenDynaset)

If (Not (rstTemp.EOF)) Then


routeNum = rstTemp(0)

Visual Basic Programming Language and Its Significant Features

Visual Basic IDEVisual Basic is a third generation event-driven programming language. The Microsoft Corporation released Visual Basic in 1987. It was indeed the first visual development tool from Microsoft. Visual Basic was derived from BASIC and enables rapid application development of graphical user interface applications, access to databases using DAO, RDO, or ADO, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects. The language not only allows Visual Basic programmers to create simple GUI applications, but also helps them develop quite complex applications. Visual Basic allows developers to target Windows, Web, and mobile devices.

Programming in Visual Basic is a combination of visually arranging components on a form, specifying attributes and actions of those components. Since the default attributes and actions ought to be defined for the components, it is very simple to write a program without the help of a Visual Basic programmer. Forms can be created using drag and drop techniques. Visual Basic provides many interesting sets of tools to help you in building exciting and entertaining applications. It provides these tools to make your life easier, since the entire coding is already written for you. Moreover, it is a user friendly language which is very effective and efficient. A tool is used to place controls such as text boxes, buttons, etc on the form window. Default values will be provided when a control is created, but it can be changed by the Visual Basic programmer.
