Application #89. Create a Screen Saver with GDI+

You might think there’s something mysterious about a Microsoft Windows screen saver, but it’s really nothing more than a Windows application in disguise. You can easily build your own screen saver by creating a regular Windows application with a form that’s displayed in dialog mode, maximized to fill the screen, and waiting for a cue to be dismissed. The cue can be a mouse click or a movement of the mouse. This sample shows you how to create and deploy a screen saver with Visual Basic .NET.
