Unloading form in style

Posted 06 November 2012 - 10:00 AM

Hello reader
Does anyone a better way of unloading form in
style?
Please help if u do.
Thz

Just in case it's not clear
I recently saw a project on the net, when the
unload button is pressed it folds to be a square
at the center of the screen then vanish or
unload Others too close and draw a vertical line then
vanish. Guess i made it clear now

VB6 is a mostly dead language used for legacy applications that people don't want to invest the money into completely re-writing.

I don't think you should try to create modern, advanced special affects in it. Its going to make you nuts.

Move forward 30 years into something like C# and WPF which has built-in animation capability.

My standard beginner resources post

First learn the language by working 2-5 "Learn C# in 30 days" type books cover to cover. Do a couple hundred on-line tutorial projects where you build what you're told to build, the way you are told to build it WITH AN EXPLANATION OF WHY so you can learn.

Then later you can start architecting your own simple stuff. Build a calculator. Build a DVD library program. Etc. Stuff that doesn't involve the complexity of a game. Then move up to games.



There are three routes people seem to take when learning programming.
  • Just start trying to create programs
  • Start taking apart other programs and try to figure out the language by reverse engineering
  • Follow a guided learning course (school or self-teaching books)


For the life of me I can't figure out why people try 1 & 2. I strongly suggest taking the guided learning approach. Those book authors go in a certain order for a reason: They know what they're doing and they know the best order to learn the materials.

Where do I start?


You start by learning a coding language FIRST.
Learn to plan before you type.
THEN you start designing software with a purpose.

Otherwise, you can just jump to the resources here:
Some of the tutorials below are for C# or Java not C, C++, VB.NET [...]. But the conceptual stuff of classes, object oriented design, events etc. are not language specific and should give you enough guidance in theory of program development for you to be able to look-up specific code example in your chosen coding language.
