MultiImage Activity Indicator
« on: September 11, 2022, 06:41:38 AM »
Hi
I'm having a lot of fun with a variation of the SimpleCircularActivityIndicator.  :biggrin:
The attached image shows a larger animation, but I had to scale it down to fit the download limit.

I had to dive deep into GIMP, but I have to say it works pretty well.  :thumbsup:

Hi JJ
Won't run on Win7-64 :sad:

That's right, we need at least Windows 8 to use WS_EX_LAYERED on a child window (WS_CHILD), in this case a control.
I coded a warning MsgBox but didn't check it again. I hope it was displayed.

While I develop the code it's just a toy.
I now realized that it is an incomplete APNG or MNP player with some additional features...   :icon_idea:

I know, it's an exploration :biggrin:. Besides, to understand how some thing work sometimes is usefull to understand how work other things apparently unrelated  :thumbsup:

Hi
I've finally found a good name for these new objects https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Throbber.
The simple one that rotates a preloaded image is now the SpinningThrobber and the one that displays a series of preloaded images as the MovingThrobber.
These names are much more practical than the older ones.
Both objects share a common base class, simply called Throbber.
