Description

This animator controls the EZ-Robot RGB 8x8 display. The animator allows you to create multiple frames using the mouse, which are can be played back at specified speeds. This operates much like a flip-book.

EZ-Script Option

This control also accepts many ControlCommand(). Using EZ-Script, you may pragmatically draw on the canvas. The canvas is a memory buffer. While you draw to the canvas, the changes occur in memory. Once you are ready to display the canvas, use the CanvasUpdate ControlCommand as demonstrated in the example below.

Here is an example of EZ-Script that creates a fun animated pattern...

$x = 0

:loop

ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasClear, false, false, false)

ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 1) % 8, ($x + 1) % 8, true, false, true)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 2) % 8, ($x + 2) % 8, false, true, true)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 3) % 8, ($x + 3) % 8, false, true, false)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 4) % 8, ($x + 4) % 8, true, false, false)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 5) % 8, ($x + 5) % 8, true, true, false)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 6) % 8, ($x + 6) % 8, true, true, true)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, ($x + 7) % 8, ($x + 7) % 8, false, false, true)
ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasDrawRectangle, 0, 0, $x % 8, $x % 8, true, false, false)

ControlCommand("RGB 8x8 Animator", CanvasUpdate)

sleep(250)

$x++

goto(loop)
