VB.NET Tutorial For Beginners – Simple Picture / Image Viewer (Visual Basic .NET)

In this beginner Visual Basic .NET tutorial I’ll show you how to create a collection of pictures and cycle through your array with buttons on a MenuStrip. We’ll create a simple Class to manage our images, and generate a List collection. When we’re done we’ll be able to Add images, remove them from the collection, and tag each image with a caption.

NOTE: I failed to capture mouse input in the video recording. Hopefully, the commentary will be detailed enough to still follow along. :-(

I have a problem here, VB ToolBox… I have NO “doubleclick” in my disposable features.
Also… HOW could we add a textbox, saying: “x days ago” (meaning… the picture has x days of being taken) ?
Finishing… can we have a permanent LIST from the pictures we like more (without having to constantly Load and Reload them, again) ?
I tried to embbed movies in your application, but… some don’t “stretch” to fill the OFD screen.  Others… do !  WHY is that ?
Thank you again, and again.
We feel we are at a University (kind of… listening to the VB “Carl Sagan”). Yeah !
IF you get time enough, I’ll appreciate your answer !
Anyway… just in case… HAVE a HAPPY CHRISTMAS !

Carlos Alberto Araujo says:

Andrews, a favor please !
Studying your Project… I tried something different… a new feature there.
I mean… having a list box that stores the “OpenFileDialog.FileName” and another to store “OpenFileDialog.SafeFileName”, just to SAVE the “listbox.Items” into a textFile.
That way we can have a fileList with the Saved items (FileName and SafeFileName).
– I can’t find a way to say >  
… WHEN I click any Item from Listbox that I created (SafeFileName) the event (Listbox1.SelectedIndex Changed…) can’t SHOW the photo FROM your ImageList(CurrentIndex).
Is there a way to add that feature ?
Thank you, and have a Happy Christmas.

Hey, I know you probably don’t do requests but is there any chance you could cover drag and drop?

Really helped take my program to the next level. Thank you!

Devin Dwight says:

Very nicely done, thank you VB Toolbox!  Would something like this be applicable to audio files to make a media player?  Or would that be a whole other beast?

Carlos Alberto Araujo says:

Absolutely… brilliant.
Of course this is not a question… but… is there anything you can’t do ?
You can make people become excited with Visual Studio, indeed.
I use Excel to control my finances (Banks, home Expenses, Personal schedules…), but now, I want to create an application to replace Excel.
That will be SOMETHING (for one who is an absolute newbie here…) !
And probably… I won’t go far…
Anyway, your perfection incites us to be better.
Thank you.

Hey there. I just stumbled upon your videos and there pretty good. I was hoping you could help me out with something (This isnt related to this video):

I’ve been trying to make a program in Visual Basic 2010 that will copy the text off of a webpage and then display it on a Label or in a Textbox.

I’ve been wanting to learn how to do this for a long time and I’ve searched for tutorials on how to do it but I cant find any on how to.

I was hoping you could help me on this.

If not, no worries.

Keep up the good work.
