In Part 1 we covered the history of animating UI effects in Xojo. Part 2 we dug in to linear interpolation. Part 3 saw the addition of support for concurrent animations and color changes. In Part 4 we’ll cover easing, which can make the most drab User Interface interactions beautiful.Continue reading →
In Part 1 we covered the basic history of animating in Xojo using pre-calculated chunks to modify the width of our component. In Part 2 we went a bit further by using linear interpolation(lerp) to calculate our current width at each step of the animation process, and setup for concurrent animation.
In this part we’ll be covering a few different things, chiefly concurrent animations. But that’s not all, as I’ve added a lerpColor function to show you how to animate color changes.Continue reading →
Continuing with what we previously learned, this version introduces the use of linear interpolation to calculate the current stage of the animation at each step, plus switching to a Dictionary object for variable storage to setup for future parts in this series.Continue reading →
While Anthony Cyphers, the owner here at GraffitiSuite.com, was taking his holiday break, he put together a simple example. It’s a quick and dirty way to animate some snowfall on an image in Real Studio. It’s a nice read and an even better effect, and just might be helpful in a project for some of you. He also put together a simple example for rain, that he assures us will someday make its way to his blog as well.
