The slider method
What we are going to do now is add a little LED-like display emitting a brief flash when changing states. Let's just go with the led_green.bmp
from the cFos
"Modern" skin for this section.
This section displays the value of the latency
parameter (see our skin definition reference page
), which can either be 0 (low latency is off) or 1 (low latency is on). With scale
set to 2, the original parameter is projected onto a range from 0 to 2. In combination with stepsize
, this will have the animation run through all of its three frames each time the original value changes from 0 to 1. Animation speed is controlled by the value entered for updatetime
, which determines the time each frame is shown in milliseconds.
Color transformations are used here to correct some minor glitches in the original bitmap's shadow colors.
