Dynamic Icon/Glyph/Image
« on: October 18, 2018, 04:00:37 am »
I am looking for a "dynamic" icon/glyph/image , something like the sort that displays a circular line of dots to indicate that the program is waiting on something or processing something.

Or the code to create the same.

Any help appreciated, Ian.

You can code it, it won't be hard.

Or you can use Google Image Search and put the keyword "free animated icon waiting".

The GIF format is specialized for animated images. In the Online-Package-Manager you find two packages, GifAnim and GifViewer, to  display them (I don't know GifAnim, but GifViewer is doing fine). Alternatively you can also use the JvBmpAnimator in the package JvMMLaz of the JVCL library (see also Online-Package-Manager): this one takes a series of bmp images and switches from image to image peridocally in a given time interval (see the equally named project in the jvcllaz/examples folder).
