Func-Afying Gif Animation

15 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ok, so I am starting with some code I got off the Examples forumn using GDI+ funcs to display an animated GIF on a transparent GUI. my goal was to convert this into a function that would fit my needs. I failed. I've been trying to wrap my mind around this for the last five hours and can't figure it out. I've gone through it line by line and can't see any significant difference in the two scripts (except for organization of code) and I'm at my last end. The picture isn't evan showing up in the first place, but the GUI IS there. If someone could have a look at this and tell me where I'm being an idiot it would be highly appreciated.

ORIGINAL SCRIPT

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <Misc.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Global $hImage, $hBitmap, $hScrDC, $hMemDC, $tSize, $pSize, $tSource, $pSource, $tBlend, $pBlend
Global $GFC, $GFDC, $pDimensionIDs, $tDL
Global $Pause

$hGUI = GUICreate("", 0, 0, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, BitOR($WS_EX_LAYERED, $WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW, $WS_EX_TOPMOST))
GUISetState()

I must say I'm lost... but I guess I got a little bit close.

I added:

Global $hImage, $hBitmap, $hScrDC, $hMemDC, $tSize, $pSize, $tSource, $pSource, $tBlend, $pBlend

at the top and uncommented the line

;GifDrawFrame($i, $ufo)

and the gif shows, but doesn't move. I thought it was because you used "$i=+1" instead of "$i+=1", but no! the gif won't move...

So wait, those variables have to be global? I tried declaring them locally inside the initiate function and that didn't work. I'M SO CONFUSED. T~T

I can't really understand WHY it doesn't work... some problem with variable types? I don't really understand why they have to be global, they are not used anywhere else in the script. I added that line just so I could add the Quit func.

But I'm still VERY confused. I demand answers from the experts. No idea why this happens.

Oh, and it's $x+=n not $x=+n so change that. And i think you won't be able to change the values of the elements of $info if you don't either declare that array as global or you use byref in every func.

Well that completely kills this code. if those variables have to be global, I can't think of any organizational layout that could work.

You want what and when?... :)

Dang wish I was an expert , maybe then I could answer, but alas... nvm.

Well.. declaring then as Global inside GifInit() works too, but I'm guessing that's not what you want. Complications for creating multiple Gifs perhaps?

Wow you must just be too smart for all of us lowly non-experts. The problem you are having is that any time you create a struct and declare it as local, you're losing the structs once you leave the function. You saved the pointer to the struct, but not the actual struct so the pointer is useless. The solution is quite simple. Send your return array by reference to the function.

I haven't messed around enough to know exactly what you need to save in the array, but this works so its a starting point.

sorry for bringing up an old thread but I have a question about animated gifs and this topic is as close to what I want to achieve but I have a knowledge gap. I have looked at ProgAndy `s animated gif UDF which allows the script to create a gif onto a gui. I have also looked at this thread with the final code edited by BillLuvsU

I want to use BillLuvsU`s code Code instead of ProgAndy `s UDF as this allows me to have a transparant gif on the screen that I can adjust the speed of the gif but the only thing i am having issues with is getting this animated gif to sit onto a precreated Gui i have already created. I am just starting out with GUI so apologies for my stupidity.....

I am guessing the reason I cannot get Nahuel`s GUI to nest in my GUI is downto the fact that they are both seperate GUIs in their own right.

Here is an example of the gui I am building - All I want to do is to beable to place the Gif somewhewre on the GUI

#include <GUIConstants.au3>

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

#Include <GuiListView.au3>

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

GUICreate("listview items", 500,500, 100, 200, -1, $WS_EX_ACCEPTFILES )

GUISetBkColor (0x00E0FFFF) ; will change background color

Global $listview = GuiCtrlCreateListView ("ID | Application Name | Progress ",10,10,400,300);,$LVS_SORTDESCENDING)

GuiCtrlCreateListViewItem("1|2|3", $listview)

GuiSetState()

Sleep(5000)
