    Red face [VB] A quicky pic display program. Friday night newb coder help! :)

    I'd really appreciate if you guys could help me out with some code for this super fast image changing thingy I'm doing. I want to use it to do my own animated cartoon stuff with V.B. as the player. Sorta like a vb flip-book

    Okie...so I've made a form that is 909px wide & 909px tall. With 1 picture box that is 900 by 900px..., 1 timer.... 1 button called "Select_Folder_Btn" .... 1 button called "Start_Btn"

    Here's what I want it to do... I want to be able to select a folder on my pc... the program should automatically display every jpeg / jpg / gif / png (from the folder) in the image box, with a 100ms pause between each photo.

    When it reach's the end of files to display...it will just loop from the start all over again :blush

    Here are some types and members that you will need to investigate: FolderBrowserDialog, Directory.GetFiles, Image.FromFile, Timer. You should be able to make a start with that. When you bump into an actual issue, you should post back with what you've done and where you're stuck.

    Awesome thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I'll post back when I've got something & leave the code I make for anyone that finds this post via a search/google result
