Animated window resize with FXRuby


#1

Hello,

Does anyone know of any prebuilt framework to facilitate animation in
FXRuby (or GTK, or Qt)? I am coming from the web world and don’t know
everything about desktop GUI.

I can’t seem to find any information on how to make similar animation
like those found in Scriptaculous, Mootools, …

Any pointer would be appreciated guys.

There’s not really anything like that built-in to FXRuby. You can
certainly set up a little timeout loop and gradually change the window
size (i.e. its width and height).

Qt4 QtRuby has Qt::TimeLine for animations that you can use in
conjunction with classes like Qt::GraphicsItemAnimation on a
Qt::GraphicsView canvas, as well as using it with ordinary Qt::Widgets.
