MultiPicBox control [With SlidShow]

Once i was working with the Microsoft’s PictureBox control. I noticed the each time i want to change the image i will have to create an Image object and Load my Image into and Assign it to PictureBox . And if i want to see the old pic (before assigning to new) i will have to again do the same.

So i thought why not make a control which support Multiple Pictures and a Slidshow Option..(with interval option).

Here are some pics of  the Control:

Properties:


AutoPreview               : Will automatically start the slideshow if enabled.
AutoResizeImages     : will automatically fit images to picture box if enabled.
ImageLimit                 : How many images should be there in control.
ImagesArrary             : Arrary of images to be displayed.
Interval                       : the interval time for the slidshow

Download Control:
Multipicbox

As you can see this one contains a Listbox and 7 buttons for the Add,Remove,up,down,,RemoveAll,Top,Bottom etc
1. Add a user control to project. Add a list box and 7 button as show in the figure.

Extended RichTextBox Control

hi. I really needed a Richtext box with Word like functionality.. i mean Bold,Italic etc etc Function. So i decided to write a Custom Control for this Purpose.

Extended RichTextBox Contains Following Controls

1. Rich Text Box [ rtxtBox ]
2. A tool Strip with Basic button including word Formatting Functionality.. [ tsStrip ]
3. A font Dialog [ fntD ], Color Dialog [ clrD ], OpenFileDialog [ ofD ]
here is a pic.

1. First Add a RichText box and a tool strip as show in figure to your Custom Control.
2. Add basic buttons to tool strip according to screen shot (You can add your own image to buttons)
3. And here is the coding..

Add This Properties to your Custom Control
