Display animated image? 5 Years, 10 Months ago  
I've been using this,

[MeterIMAGE]
Meter=IMAGE
ImageName=skel.gif

to simply display a gif, but it's an animated gif and I only get the first of five frames. Is there a way to get the animation to work?

TIA

Later: I've found a webapp to split the gif, if that helps.

Rainmeter doesn't support animated gifs.

Thanks. Too bad. Oh well.

Later: Been thinking. If I could split and convert the gif frames to another filetype, is there then a way to play those elements in rapid succession and then loop that entire operation?

Sorry. I get a bit tenacious about challenges.

Hi d4l3d.

Good news for you: it's possible to display an animated image. I've seen a gadget that shows an animated flame... (I still have it somewhere on my PC... if you want, I can send it to you)
All you have to do is:
a) Create an image that contains the frames side by side (5 frames in your case);
b) Use the following code example and modify it as needed:

--- begin ---
[CounterMeasure]
Measure=Calc
Formula=Counter % 5
MaxValue=5
MinValue=0

[AnimationMeter]
MeasureName=CounterMeasure
Meter=BITMAP
X=0
Y=0
BitmapImage=[filename]
BitmapFrames=5
--- end ---

If you have any doubt, please let me know...

Rgds,

Thanks ChrisVM;

This is great! I thought someone might have tried to create a sequential display of some sort.

If you can find that gadget then yes, please. I guess you could send it as an attachment with your reply?

BTW, the code you show also helps to answer a question I had elsewhere about the Calc function.

Two more questions. Do you know if there is a way to influence the speed of the animation and, will this loop?

Hi d4l3d.

Well. One question at a time
1) I tried to attach the skin but it does not fit the 122KB limits... so, let's try something different. here is the ini file:
File Attachment:
File Name: regular.ini
File Size: 403
I'll send the images as zipped files in separate posts... All you have to do is save all the three files in the same sub-directory under skins directory.

2) You asked if is there a way to influence the speed. --> YES. I forgot to mention that you can use the Update parameter in the Rainlendar section to do so... The value for this parameter is informed in milliseconds.
3) "will this loop?" --> YES. I didn't try to figure out "why", but yes it does loop...

If I can help more, please let me know...

Rgds,
