View Full Version : Animations

May 5th, 2009, 03:58 PM
Could any point me in the right direction for information on animations? There is very little that I can find on the developer site, and I can't seem to find an example of what I need to do in another app.

Essentially, I need to be able to slide image controls from one side of the screen to the other, as well as shift the position of a group list control.

found this in a skin file

<animation effect="slide" start="600,0" end="0,0" time="200">WindowOpen</animation>
<animation effect="slide" start="0,0" end="600,0" time="200">WindowClose</animation>

Thanks for that. I just grep'd my apps directory and the Boxee default skin directory and didn't find those lines--could you tell me which app you found that in? I'm just looking for some context (IE, did they need to <include> anything at the top, etc.).

It's in the youtube app. Post any of your findings. I'm finally getting to the point of bells & whistles with my current app project.

You can also take a look at boxee's skin itself for animations. I think the left menu or boxee home xml files reference some effects.

Memories a bit hazy on that.
