Visual Basic .NET (SPRING 2004)

Final Test: Exam Study Guide and Outline.

  1. Last assignment on Neko the racing cats. Email note #1.

  2. Download the EXEcutable sample program. It was originally written in Visual Basic 6.0 (or earlier). You have the VB 6.0 code for this EXEcutable sample program as a handout from before spring break. VB 6.0 code is NOT VB .Net code, by the way! :-)

  3. Download the NINE cat images (GIF files) you will need. Two are for running animation, two are for scratching, and two are for snoozing.
    math-cs:~/web/Neko> ls
    awake.gif   right2.gif    scratch2.gif  sleep2.gif  yawn.gif
    right1.gif  scratch1.gif  sleep1.gif    stop.gif

  4. Your program will need to have a finish line for the cats to cross, as well as recording and displaying who was 1st, 2nd and 3rd and 4th to finish the race. (More specs and resources here later).

  5. Monday, March 22nd UPDATED handout. Shows the techniques needed for arrays, using multiple Forms in an application, ImageList controls, Timers, etc.

  6. Download the SECOND VERSION of Neko racing: EXEcutable Cat race: Version 2. It includes three new checkboxes, two new buttons, and three labels for the Gold, Silver and Bronze.

  7. Download the THIRD VERSION of Neko racing: EXEcutable Cat race: Version 3. (As of 11:50 a.m. Wednesday, March 24th).

  8. Download the SIX new cat images (GIF files) only if you get ambitious and want to have additional fun. Two are for running down the screen, two are for running up the screen, and two are for running to the left or westward (instead of to the right or eastward).

  9. Download the FOURTH VERSION of Neko racing: EXEcutable Cat race: Version 4. (As of 4:50 p.m. Wednesday, March 24th).

  10. Click HERE to see Visual Basic 6.0 user interface for version 4 at DESIGN TIME.

The ImageList Control used with the PictureBox control. The ImageList control contains all NINE different cat images, as shown in the Neko cat race software today in class.
Private Sub btnNewCat_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _ 
                            ByVal e As System.EventArgs)   _
                                                   Handles btnNewCat.Click
  Static whichPic As Integer
  If whichPic < ImageList1.Images.Count - 1 Then
     whichPic += 1
     whichPic = 0
  End If

  picNeko.Image = ImageList1.Images(whichPic)
End Sub
Due Wednesday, March 10th: Assignment Two on file input, ListBox use and encryption concepts (for practice with nested loops). VIP: Email note about the assignment and concepts.
