AVI - Animated button

You can see this effect on some multimedia programs: as you drag mouse over the button, the button will animate. The whole thing is in CAniButton class derived from CButton.

Use CAniButton as a normal CButton (Style must be Owner draw) On Init dialog simply use LoadAVI( AVI_ID ) where AVI_ID is ID of AVI file loaded in resources.

The button will resize to match the size of AVI animation. The first frame of animation will be used as a static look. Be careful when you create your own AVI file. Not everything could be played !

Here is what is written for Animated control in MSDN:

Animation controls can play only simple AVI clips. Specifically, the clips to be played by an animation control must meet the following requirements:
-There must be exactly one video stream and it must have at least one frame.
-There can be at most two streams in the file (typically the other stream, if present, is an audio stream, although the animation control ignores audio information).
-The clip must either be uncompressed or compressed with RLE8 compression.
-No palette changes are allowed in the video stream.

  • How to fix problem with clicking

    I fixed the problem in this way: add member function to CAniButton and name it for example StopAnimation():
    void CAniButton::stopAnimation()
    {
    m_AnimateCtrl.Stop(); //stop the animation
    m_AnimateCtrl.Seek(0);//set the first frame to be dispalyed on button
    m_bPlaying = FALSE;
    }

    after that in method that handles clicked message from button: CAvibtntestDlg::OnOk() before doing anything call
    m_ctrOK.stopAnimation():
    void CAvibtntestDlg::OnOk()
    {
    m_ctrOK.stopAnimation();
    //do sth.
    MessageBox("Test");
    }

    I have got a idea that add "m_YourBtn.SendMessage(WM_LBUTTONDOWN);" to the last of your Method of BN_CLICKED.
