Random Pictures

Question:
How would I get a different picture to pop up every 3 seconds in a different position?

Answer:
It's pretty simple, actually:

  1. Make a form with an image/picturebox control that is set to size to the picture being loaded.
  2. Resize the form to the picturebox when you load a new picture.
  3. Generate a random number for the X and Y coordinates of the screen.
  4. Use the Move method of the form to move it there.
