I need to create an on-screen shape (circle) that has a fill color, which will blink every X seconds (go from fill color, to white, back to fill color). This is trivial to do...BUT... i want to do it in my own class, so that I can instantiate it numerous times passing it unique coordinates for each instantiation.
How do I do it? Can a class have its own "timer control" in it independent from the form? How would I draw a shape from a class? Any ideas?
I am fairly proficient in VB6, still poking my way through .NET stuff, so don't laugh too much at my question :)
Thanks in advance,
