Hi all, big time VB fan, longtime off it. Saw Xojo, thought, WOW, resurrection city BUT, I’ve encountered something on my first 2 days that is causing a massive stall.
- I can’t seem to paint/draw/whatever to a ‘canvas’ unless I’m sitting inside it’s Paint event. Is this correct?
My history for kicks:- Making semi-complex dungeon crawlers in 2.5d with 1000’s of monsters doing their thing. Animations, spells, combat stabbing and such. So, during the many for-next loops I’m often throwing things onto the VB picturebox control, and then passing through many modules to thusly, throw more things into the picturebox. Once refreshed, that picturebox ended up as a fast, real-time game that was animated and ran ever-so-smoothly.
But after crawling through the forums and samples, it looks like the ‘similar’ function for external dumping/painting onto the canvas has been taken away. (Even by outside modules).
Am I perceiving this correctly or is their some sort of magic that I haven’t found yet?
Thank you for your time.
