Gtk2::ImageView::Anim(3) Subclass of Gtk2::ImageView capable of playing


Gtk2::ImageView::Anim is a subclass of Gtk2::ImageView that provies facilities for displaying and controlling an animation.






widget or undef = Gtk2::ImageView::Anim->new

Returns a new Gtk2::ImageView::Anim with the following default values:
anim : NULL
is_playing : FALSE

pixbufanimation or undef = $aview->get_anim

Returns the current animation of the view.

$aview->set_anim ($anim)

  • $anim (Gtk2::Gdk::PixbufAnimation)

Sets the pixbuf animation to play, or NULL to not play any animation.

The effect of this method is analoguous to Gtk2::ImageView::set_pixbuf(). Fit mode is reset to GTK_FIT_SIZE_IF_LARGER so that the whole area of the animation fits in the view. Three signals are emitted, first the Gtk2::ImageView will emit zoom-changed and then pixbuf-changed, second, Gtk2::ImageView::Anim itself will emit anim-changed.

The default pixbuf animation is NULL.

aview : a Gtk2::ImageView::Anim.
anim : A pixbuf animation to play.

boolean = $aview->get_is_playing

Returns TRUE if the animation is playing, FALSE otherwise. If there is no current animation, this method will always return FALSE.

$aview->set_is_playing ($playing)

  • $playing (boolean)

Sets whether the animation should play or not. If there is no current animation this method does not have any effect.

aview : a Gtk2::ImageView::Anim.
playing : TRUE to play the animation, FALSE otherwise


Steps the animation one frame forward. If the animation is playing it will be stopped. Will it wrap around if the animation is at its last frame?
aview : a Gtk2::ImageView::Anim.
