Welcome to challenge #29

Banners Revisited

Earlier this month we had a challenge to make a banner creator, sadly no one was able to complete it within 24 hours. I have decided to repost the challenge but with a few requirement changes..

This is a desktop based challenge, take a look at the following mock-up design for a layout (just an example):

Image

Your challenge for today is to create a desktop based banner maker, the user should be able to enter three basic pieces of information..

Text
Image
Font Type/Style


Once the user has entered this information the application should generate a preview of the banner image for them to see, then it should have an option to save that banner as an image file (jpg, png, bmp etc).

The user should also be able to move the image and text using the mouse in order to position them within the banner before saving as an image file.

Rules for this challenge:
Must allow customisation of at least the title, image and font style.
Must preview the banner.
Must allow user to position elements with mouse.
Must be able to save the generated banner as an image file.


Good luck cooll;

The last challenge was web-based. I'm not into HTML so I was unable to do it.

Good thing is I coded moving the controls with mouse recently when I was making the app for the challenge "One and Only". But there was a change of idea so I didn't post it.

#comathi I'm glad you like it! And btw, how did you integrate the control without having to supply the .dll?

#Usman55, I simply copied the UserControl's VB file into my project. Since you provided all of the source code, I also have the UserControl files and can use them in my projects.

By the way, I added a few things to the palette. I could PM you the changes if you want to include them in an updated release of Color Palette :)

#comathi Nah, I don't think I'll be updating it for a while. But PM the changes you made. Thanks.
