Option Explicit

Option Compare Database

Private Sub Form_Load()

TimerInterval = 100


Dim cnt As Control

Dim i As Integer

Dim L As Integer

Dim T As Integer

For i = 0 To Controls.Count - 1

Set cnt = Controls.Item(i)

L = cnt.Left

T = cnt.Top

cnt.Move L + 4500, T + 1500


End Sub


Private Sub Form_Timer()

' Display  animate heart

Dim i As Integer

i = 0

For i = 0 To Controls.Count - 1

  Dim X As Control

  Set X = Me.Controls.Item(i)

  ' Set flower1 picture to all image controls

   X.Picture = CurrentProject.Path & "\flower1.jpg"
