Cool Screen Wipes

Cool Screen Wipes

You can achieve some cool form wipes with judicious use of the Movemethod. For example, to draw a curtain from right to left use this routine:

 Sub WipeRight (Lt%, Tp%, frm As Form)	Dim s, Wx, Hx, i	s = 90 'number of steps to use in the wipe	Wx = frm.Width / s 'size of vertical steps	Hx = frm.Height / s 'size of horizontal steps	' top and left are static 	' while the width gradually shrinks	For i = 1 To s - 1		frm.Move Lt, Tp, frm.Width - Wx	NextEnd Sub

Call the routine from a command button by using this code:

 L = Me.LeftT = Me.TopWipeRight L, T, Me

It is also possible to wipe a form from bottom to top, and from bothsides to the middle, using similar routines.
