Im working on a teleprompter program for my video production class and ive got the text scrolling with a label. the only problem is when the label scrolls, i get that classic flickering usually associated with timers. i tried slowing down the timer, and speeding up the movement of the label, but now it just flickers a little slower, and its all choppy. is there a way to get rid of that flickering?
-thanks

labels are lightweight controls. they flicker because they don't have their own DCs. which results in a flicker. to avoid that, try using a textbox, or a picture box with your label inside.
