  1. Re: Do you need to use GlobalUnlock before using GlobalFree?

    When allocated memory is free, it no longer exists so how can it still have a lock on it. The memory has been freed and its metadata rendered invalid so the locks become irrelevant.

    It does now. I added that feature for you. Use the Index property of version 1.2.0.0 to start at any image. Check the OP.
  14. Re: Animated image fading [Updated 3/14/2014 7:00 AM]

    Do you mean to just show a specific image without fading ? Or do you mean to start the fading at any image beside the first one ?

    Re: What if there was a NEW vb6

    VB.Net is an improved VB6 hence any thread that advocates an improved VB6 is a .Net hate thread. By nature of its very existence, it denies VB.Net as VB6's successor.
