Hi all

Hi to move a label box from left to right and right to left with the help of timers.
Also how to change the fore color of the label (RAndom colcors )with the help of timers

Thanks in advance

drag a timer on your form and a label double click on timer and you will have its event where you need to code.
now put one loop and condition in which you will define Left Position of Label and by condition you will check if label left position is 0 then move to right. That is all the theme behind your code. Plz try to code and if it doesnt work then send me the code at my email [email][email removed as per forum rules][/email]

Use Rnd () function to Get the Random value.
The Rnd function returns a value less than 1, but greater than or equal to zero.

Example Dim value As Integer = CInt(Int((256 * Rnd()))) You will get the value 0 to 255
By using Rnd() in timer, generate Color from Color.FromArgb() function and Set this for forecolor

Try this:

Public Class Form1
    Dim RanNum As New Random            ' Random number generator
    Dim DistMove As Integer = 10        ' The distance the label moves each time

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        ' Add distance to label
        Label1.Left += DistMove
        ' Check if label has reach the right side of window
        If Label1.Left + Label1.Width > Me.ClientRectangle.Width Then
            ' If so make sure none is hidden
            Label1.Left = Me.ClientRectangle.Width - Label1.Width
            ' Reverse the direction - if positive make negative, if negative make positive
            DistMove = Not DistMove
        ElseIf Label1.Left < 0 Then
            ' If label is less than zero make it zero
            Label1.Left = 0
            ' Reverse the direction
            DistMove = Not DistMove
        End If
        ' Change the forecolor of the label. The RanNum.Next gives a number between 0 and 255
        Me.Label1.ForeColor = Color.FromArgb(255, RanNum.Next(0, 255), RanNum.Next(0, 255), RanNum.Next(0, 255))
    End Sub
End Class
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        Label1.Left = Label1.Left + 5
        If Label1.Left >= Me.Width Then
            Label1.Left = 0
        Else
            Label1.Left = Label1.Left + 5
        End If

    End Sub
End Class
Public Class Form1
' dont care about commented statements
  

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        Dim a As Integer
        ' For a = 1 To 3
        a = 1




        'If lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left > Me.ClientRectangle.Width Then
        'lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left + 10

        'ElseIf lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left < Me.ClientRectangle.Width Then
        'lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left - 10
        'Else
        'End If

        'Next
        ' lblmve.Right = lblmve.Right + 10

        lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left + 5 * a
        If lblmve.Left >= Me.Width Then
            a = -1
            'lblmve.Left = 0
            'ElseIf lblmve.Right >= Me.Width Then
            'lblmve.Left = lblmve.Left - 100
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
