How To Get The Graphic
Can we use vb to get graphic from the digital camera .. and how to do it .than

I have a graph. On x axis i have the number of spins (a spin is a number from 0 to 36) and in the right of the graph I have a richtextbox with each spin each number.
Supposing that I have 1000 spins and someone scrolls the richtextbox and clicks on spin number 456 i want on the graph to appear a rectangle around it to show where's that located.
I did that.. the problem is the folowing... how can I delete that rectangle after the user clicks on another spin? Currently the program draws every rectangle without deleting the last one.
Is there anything like XOR_PUT or something like this I don't know...?
I use the Rectangle API for drawing the rectangle.


Got a graphic for a vb a bitmap.

I Need Some Graphic Help!!!

3d Graphic
 I have little problem with drawing 3d graphic. User will enter three joints via grid in my form p(x,y,z)
and define frames like p1 to p2. Now i want to make drawing whit this data but i can't define z
coordinate (joints). May you write little code

Changing Graphic Hue
I was wondering what the best method of doing this type of thing would be, to show you an example of what I am talking about, I'll give you a base image (colorless) then what I want to do to that graphic when rendering it in the program. The color in the second graphic I want to also be edited (ie changing the hue), I just choose red for the example. I going to do the whole bitblt masking thing, but is there a way to change the hue of the mask when placing it overtop of the original image (or however masking works :S).

I'd also like transparency around the object (not shown in this picture).

Graphic Approach For OCX
Hi All,

I need to write on OCX to be used by another programming environment (Powerbuilder).

The OCX functionality is similar to a gant- I have timeline on which I drag and drop items (boxes/actions). The items on the timeline have some data associated with them. The items can be moved/resized/deleted - thus- need to have some sort of mechanism to "access" them.

We initially created an OCX that uses labels (and some shapes) to create the timeline grid and the items on it. The problem is that way the OCX tend to be slow and consume a lot of resources (Using Load and Unload).

I thought that a better approach would be to draw objects (lines, text, circles, textures, rectengale) on a picture box.

Could the second approach produce lighter, faster OCX? Would it be much more complicated to write? What about the different events that I get from using the embedded controls (labels), can I mimic similar behavior? Should I draw in a picturebox?

Any other approach you'd recomend? GDI? Something else?

Comments are welcomed!!!

Graphic Editing...
Ok, here's what I need to know how to do. I want to make a program that will take a picture of any size that you pick, take this picture from your hard drive into the program, chops the picture into 16 pixel by 16 pixel image sand save each little cut up square into it's own ".BMP" file. Does anyone have any pointers on how to go about this? I can see the saving part, using an array, moving it possibly into an Imagebox and saving it from there....but how would one import the pic into the program, and most importantly chop it into it's manageable chunks??

Graphic Issues
I have recently got myself a laptop and when I placed my VB work on here, all graphics had drastically changed.

When I installed my App on my mates computer everything looked how it looked on ym computer.

When I installed it on another computer, all the graphics including fonts had changed. Words had dissapeared and buttons slightly offset.

Did I do something wrong when making my application

Do I need to save the settings so when its installed on another machine it will adjust itself so it will looke exactly like the original ?

Can anyone help me?

Thankyou for looking

Creating A Graphic With 2
Hi. This might be complex, but I'll give it a try... I am wondering how to create a graphic with two: one is any graphic and the other one would be a mask containing 3 colors:

1 color for transparency
1 color for the first picture
1 color for a black outline

I am wondering how I can tell VB "Hey, this color is for a black outline, this one is for transparency and the other one is for that other picture... Now rasterize that..."

I would like it to become something like the attached image so I can use it on my layout... (note that the image attached is a compressed jpg, but my images are neat...)

If I need 2 masks, I can do 2...

Thanks in advance

Graphic Design
Hi all, currently I am developing a vb program contains mainly graphics... I was wondering if anyone knows any graphic software I can use to create good graphics for my VB program...

Printing A Graphic
I have a graphic painted on a form. It consistes of some charts with bitmap images,lines and text. The graphic is the result of my application and I need to print it. How do I print a copy of my graphic? The graphic is not in a picture box or user control but is directly on the form.

Text -> Graphic
Thanks to everyone who's been offering help. I got the clickable bltfast thing taken care of, as well as a few other problems. However, I can't figure out a way to take text and change it to graphics-and then put it wherever it needs to go. Right now I'm using a 'DrawText' sub to actually create the text, and it is called with the location, etc. I have an 'AddText' sub that essentially /sends/ the text to the server. How would I go about breaking apart a string of letters and replacing them with graphics? I'd like to continue using DX7 for this. I don't know if I have a choice on it if I want to keep it from blinking. I can handle creating the surfaces and such.

Public Sub DrawText(ByVal hdc As Long, ByVal x, ByVal y, ByVal Text As String, Color As Long)
Call SelectObject(hdc, GameFont)
Call SetBkMode(hdc, vbTransparent)
Call SetTextColor(hdc, RGB(0, 0, 0))
Call TextOut(hdc, x + 2, y + 2, Text, Len(Text))
Call TextOut(hdc, x + 1, y + 1, Text, Len(Text))
Call SetTextColor(hdc, Color)
Call TextOut(hdc, x, y, Text, Len(Text))
End Sub

Public Sub AddText(ByVal Msg As String, ByVal Color As Integer)
Dim s As String
Dim TextX As Long
Dim TextY As Long
Dim Time As Long
Dim PlayerText As String

s = vbNewLine & Msg

frmMirage.txtChat.SelStart = Len(frmMirage.txtChat.Text)
frmMirage.txtChat.SelColor = QBColor(Color)
frmMirage.txtChat.SelText = s
frmMirage.txtChat.SelStart = Len(frmMirage.txtChat.Text) - 1

frmChatLog.txtChat.SelStart = Len(frmChatLog.txtChat.Text)
frmChatLog.txtChat.SelColor = QBColor(Color)
frmChatLog.txtChat.SelText = s
frmChatLog.txtChat.SelStart = Len(frmChatLog.txtChat.Text) - 1
End Sub

Eventually, the 'txtChat' in frmMirage will be done away with. It's there until I can figure out this problem, as well as how to get it to appear over a character-although I think I've just about got that one.

Also, does anyone have the vbDABL dll's for alphablending? directx4b says it's got it- but the link is dead, and so is the one at nearly everywhere else I've looked..

Graphic Rotation

2D Vector Graphic
Hello people,

I should create a program that creates rather simple 2D vector graphics (lines, text, arcs and ellipses) and is able to move them smoothly too. I checked out the VB basic possibilities (Shape control), but they don't meet my requirements - I'd prefer a good anti-aliasing feature and transforms (I need rotating, resizing and just moving) should be as smooth as possible.

I've tried to explore DirectX (DirectDraw 7 and Direct3D 8) as well as OpenGL, but they might be a bit too complicated to my needs. There seems to be lack of good and basic OpenGL for VB manuals too (as is for DX operations)

Any ideas? Or should I just concentrate to DX and/or OpenGL?

Thank you for your help,

Graphic Storage
I am makeing an RPG that has a lot of graphics.

Should I leave them as jpg files?
Or is there a better way of storing them?

PPT Graphic Animation

I'm using Ms PowerPoint '00.

Does anyone know how to make graphics disappear off the screen with some type of animation? Basically, the ppt's current animations enable graphics to "fly" or "blind" onto the screen. I need to find a way to make those graphics "fly" or "blind" off of the screen.

I know of the "hide after animation" and "hide after mouse click" already, but it is not what I'm looking for. When using those options, you need to animate the graphic "onto" the slide. I would like to have the graphic on the slide to begin with, and then animate it off the slide.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Squashing A Graphic
Hi There!

Is there a way (without using DirectX) that I can get a picture from a picture box and deform it into a trapezium shape? This is so that I can get a perspective effect but I don't know DirectX. If it helps, I know about BitBlt and StretchBlt but can't produce the effect.

PS: Sorry if this isn't right for the "General" section, but I thought it was a better match than the forums
