Moving Message in VB6

P: 1
Hi Everybody,

I have just joined this forum. I am facing a problem while developing a software in VB6. the aim is to use a label of approx. 30 mm height covering full width of the screen with very large font size. The message must move left continuously like ticker tape on TV screen.

If I use timer control (50 mS, or so) to move the message flickering occours. Is there a way out ? It works well except the flickker. Can somebody suggest how to get rid of the flikker?

Try increasing the interval of the timer to about 150 or 200..flickering occurs because at a very low intervals,the screen needs to be updated very frequently

You might want to try playing with some of the properties of the underlying form, such as AutoRedraw and ClipControls.

I recommend looking them up in the doco and having a play. This is the sort of area where I'm never certain of the correct way to do things. I just fiddle with them until things seem to work.
