Default ScreenSAver project

Hi folks, in need of some guidance.
I am looking to write a screen saver that will connect to a sql server data base and retrieve images ad some info relating to each image.
I am then looking to display these images on the screen saver which will then randomly select a new image every 10 seconds.
I am relatively new to c# and any help or pointers to know resources would be appreciated

Any exe file can be converted to a screensaver by changing the extenctions to svr. Be warned as this can be highly ineffiecent if you are using a graphical intensive screen saver.

In so far as specific tutorials on this, I do not know of any. However, if all you are doing is updating a picture box with 1 image every 10 seconds that is as simple as writing an application with a Timer, a PictureBox, and a sql connection.

That should set you on the right path.
