Thanks for the nice 16x16 24-frame animated gif !
I wonder to know if there is a way in Revolution that animated gif
are going to be automatically animated during the execution of a
script. This is in fact the reason of your new 'chasing arrows' to
show the user that a process is currently running and he should be
My solution up to now:
1.- open the animated gif in GraphicConverter
2.- save it as a Quicktime Movie,
3.- add a Player named "MyAnim" onto your card
4.- in message box type :
set the filename of player "MyAnim" to theQuicktimeMovieFilePath
set the looping of player "MyAnim" to true
5.- then a script sample during which the animation is displayed:
show player "MyAnim"
start player "MyAnim"
here you have some long process to run -- <-- change as needed...
stop player "MyAnim"
hide player "MyAnim"
6.- Of course the animation is not displayed if you set the
lockscreen to true in your script.
Enjoy and tell me if there is a direct solution with animated gif.
