Lesson 28 : Creating Animation

Although Visual Basic 2010 is a programming language designed for creating business applications, it can be used to create animation. In this lesson, we shall illustrate to create animation with VB2010 through a few examples.

28.1 Moving an object

In VB2010, you can use the Top and Left properties of an object to create animation. The Top property defines the distance of the object from the topmost border of the screen while the Left property defines the distance of the object from the leftmost border of the screen.

By adding or subtracting the distance of the object we can create the animated effect of moving an object.Start a new project and name it as Movable Object, or any name you wish. Now insert a PictureBox and in its Image property import a picture from your hard drive or other sources. Next, insert four command buttons, change their captions to Move Up, Move Down, Move Left and Move Right. Name them as MoveUpBtn, MoveDowbBtn, MoveLeftBtn and MoveRightBtn.

To complete this lesson, we suggest you grab a copy of Visual Basic 2010 Made Easy.
