    Hi,

    Here is an improved slide show program written in B4PPC.

    This program lets you select 8 slides for viewing.

    It uses the opendialog control to access files on the PDA so
    that you can assign them to 1 of 8 slides.

    The time delay interval ranges from 1 second up to 4.5 seconds
    in steps of 250 mSeconds.

    You can select the Slide Image control property: Center, Normal
    or Stretch.

    You can tap on any of the eight circular indicators to display
    the picture attached to that slide.

    You can scroll left or right through the eight slides one slide at a
    time.

    You can Start the slide show which will repeat continually until it
    is stopped.

    You can Edit the picture files that are assigned to the eight slides
    and save the information in a data file, which can be read back into
    the program at a later time.

    The file "Ss8.JPG" is a screenshot of the Slide Show 8 opening screen.
    The file "Ss8a.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 1.
    The file "Ss8b.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 2.
    The file "Ss8c.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 3.
    The file "Ss8d.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 4.
    The file "Ss8e.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 5.
    The file "Ss8f.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 6.
    The file "Ss8g.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 7.
    The file "Ss8h.JPG" is a screenshot of slide 8.
    The file "Sse8.JPG" is a screenshot of the edit screen.
    The file "Slide8.sbp" is the Basic4ppc source code for the program.
    The file "Slidezip.zip" is the zipped ARMV4 (.CAB) installation file.

    It looks a bit like my slideshow program, MotionPicture mobile.
    Although I think yours is easier to use.
    Why can you only use 8 pictures?

    Slide Show 8

    Hi,

    I set the program up for 8 slides because there are 8 circular indicators
    at the bottom of the screen.

    The program is just a quick example. I was curious about the Image
    control and had to do something with it. I did not have to much time
    to work on it.

    Check out the new version that I am about to post in the
    "Share Your Creations" section. It is called "Show and Tell 12".
    This version is set up for 12 Slides, to match the 12 circular
    indicators at the bottom of the screen. This version will allow you
    to attach a sound (.wav) file to each slide.

    Eventually, I would like to get rid of all of the controls at the bottom
    of the screen by moving them to the Menu Bar at the bottom of the
    screen so that I can use all of the available screen space to view the
    picture images. I was hoping to create a version where you could
    have any number of slides, but that will take me some time to write it.
