Visual BASIC project- Screen Saver

Visual BASIC project- Screen Saver

Visual BASIC project- Screen Saver

(OP)
I am a high school student. I am doing a final project for my computer programming class. I would like to know how to make a screen saver, preferably with motion! If anyone could help I would be greatly appreciative.

RE: Visual BASIC project- Screen Saver

ummm...does it have to be VB? I have a QB4.5 screen-saver type prog on my computer here (I *think* I still have it, that is)....has a big, spinning, square in the middle of the screen; let me know if that would help & I'll send you my source code if I can find it.

RE: Visual BASIC project- Screen Saver

First of all, make your screen saver(standard EXE project) and when done you have to make procedures for all the controls on your project with Mousemove(keyascii as integer). For Example:

Private Sub Image1_Mousemove(keyascii as integer)

End
End Sub

You must also do this for the form itself.
Next go to the project menu and then the Project Properties. Go to make and in the title box put SCRNSAVE: {The name of your screensaver}. Then compile it in the windows directory but as an .scr file.

Hope this helps.
