Hey does anyone out there know how to move an image across the screen for an application.. The image has to move smotthely between two points. for example the image ha sto move somtthly between (10,10) and (90,60).
Is there anyway tos et how fast it moves between these two points?
Anyone have any code.. teh site is not very helpful.. it only has for applets and am doing applications and the code they give you is so limited... any suggestions or code?

yours respectfully<br />Avin Sinanan

If you don't like so much flickering, you might want to explore double buffering. Here is Cindy's code with some double buffering for a smoother animation:

Note: You can adjust the timing with the "Thread.sleep(50);" part.
Good Luck,
