Visual Basic Help

And yes, this is homework help, but I don’t want an answer. I was hoping for some guidance.
for my project I am making a flip book. I am pretty close, but I cannot figure out how to make the pictures run automatically. I can click through each picture and have figured out how to get that far, and I have a counter that stops it at the end, but I just can’t figure out how to make it load each picture (like a slide show).

I just need a little hint in the right direction and then I can figure this out. I think I have to use the ToString…? but I’ll be darned if I can figure out how.

Any little help you can provide will be appreciated!

Maybe use a timer control.

You can set it to perform an action at set intervals, e.g. load the next picture every 10 seconds.

Is that what you mean?

I’m a little confused by the problem description. Do you have a flipbook that you can manually advance and want to make it run automatically? Or do you want it to load something that it’s not loading right now?


The timer control is what I need. I have a timer in the program…I just need to figure out how to make each picture advance. Thanks for that site, I’ll go through it line by line.

ultrafilter, I have a flipbook I can currently advance manually. I want to be able to click one button and have the entire flipbook go through, (and then later, to be able to change its speed too). Once I have it moving, the speed should be easy.

Take whatever function you’re using to advance the pictures, and make the timer call that when it goes off.

Ok…that I think I can do. Thanks!
