Animation technique?

Hello -

Can anyone tell me, is there a means -- either in flash, java, or other
commonly installed medium -- of mapping a bitmapped image to the mouse
cursor/pointer, and then when the cursor is moved, have the image scale
either larger or smaller? E.g., when moved upwards, the image gets
smaller, when moved downwards, the image gets bigger?

Yes, this is possible, though stretching a bitmap will look kind of
nasty. Maybe you take a look at Zorn's DHTML (google it) to get some
ideas. The basics of e.g. tracking mouse movement are in it, too.

Hello, I'm new to c# and have created an animation which draws directly to the window, it uses the code below which all works. I would like to know if this is the 'correct' way to do it - or would an experienced c# programmer do it another way? This part defines the screen and the graphics pad I'm drawing to: Graphics screen = CreateGraphics(); Graphics drawpadg = Graphics.FromImage(drawpad);

Take a look at this new JS function I made. It is really simple but very powerful. You can animate any stylesheet numeric value (top left width height have been tested), and works for both % and px values. Works in both ie and firefox. Parameters styleType = top | left | width | height toNumber = the new value of the style then you pass in as many ids as you would like.

Hi, Is there any way to make DOM scripted animation smoother? Flash is far superior in this area. Any one here know what makes Flash so smooth by comparison? I don't like the fact that the standards based world is so far behind the Flash based stuff in some areas (animation and server push in particular)

My application has a lot of complicated SQL statements, calculations, processing that takes time. I've created a custom form to act like a messagebox. It has 10 small rectangles on it that change color sequentially to let the user know that processing is occurring. This 'animation' occurs via the form timer event. However, I'm having trouble getting the animation to occur for all types of processing events. It appears that I have to...

Can someone point me to some good info on how to do somoe simple animation on a form. Specifically, I want to have some tiles that when they are clicked, they flip over in place and reveal a number. Obviously the flipping part should be animated and the user interface should not have to wait for the tile animation to complete before another tile can be selected. Thanks. J

Now that, I would like to do similar thing in my C# application. But what is the most efficient way to do so? 1)Manually...
