Dynamic Animation



i am using:



to display a animated gif for when my app is busy doing things on other threads.


is it possible to have a holding bitmap, which is replaced by a animated gif and vice-versa.


i know using .setBitmap() the same can be done with a static image. any code would be grateful.


thanks in advance

Re: Dynamic Animation

That particular sample expects a GIF.  It could be modified to accept a bitmap as well or you could just use a regular BitmapField to display your bitmap image, which would be simpler to implement.
