  • AVI animation control

    Has anyone done anything with the animation control to play AVI files in a dialog?

    Any sample code?

    if you are interesting in mci (with sound) -- http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=22720

    if you are about common controls - search by sysanimate32

    for example, see chris's subs in http://www.powerbasic.com/support/pb...ad.php?t=20216

      Dave;

      The animation control is not intended for Videos with sound.
      It can't play sound and the control must use a 'silent" AVI.

      If you need real animation/video capabilities, then create a
      generic window and use MCI to play a Video in it.

        I need to play silent AVI's (like the one displayed by Microsoft when you COPY files and folders) in a dialog.

          Dave,

          you can use MS's multimedia OCX with JA COM/PB 2.0 :-)

            This is what I have been using...
            Is this what you are asking for?

            Code:
              Dialog New ghForm, "Copy files", 0, 0,200,40, Style&, ExStyle& To hDlg&
              AniStyle& = %WS_CHILD Or %WS_VISIBLE Or %ACS_AUTOPLAY Or %ACS_TRANSPARENT Or %ACS_CENTER
              AniStyleEx& = 0 '%WS_EX_CLIENTEDGE
              Control Add "SysAnimate32", hDlg&, 1000,"",0,0,200,40,AniStyle&,AniStyleEx&
              Dialog Show Modeless hDlg&
              Control Handle hDlg&,1000 To hAni&
              Call Animate_Open(hAni&,"FILECOPY.AVI")
              ....
              ....
              Call Animate_Close(hAni&)
              Dialog End hDlg&

              >> you can use MS's multimedia OCX with JA COM/PB 2.0 :-) <<

              Thanks Philippe, but I like to avoid third-party controls unless absolutely necessary.

              >> This is what I have been using... Is this what you are asking for? <<

              Fred, thanks a bunch. It's precisely what I was looking for.

                Dave,
                I haven't done it in PB/DLL but I have a VB5 example of the COPY FILES display.
                Regards,
                Barney
