Download Example Project - (145 kb)


Its pretty easy to implement an avi control. Follow these steps to add an avi animation control (CAnimateCtrl) to your dialog resource:

  • In the resource editor, click on the animate control icon, and place one on your dialog.
  • Go into 'Class Wizard' and add a control name to your newly inserted component. example:
  • CAnimateCtrl m_avi;
    

    this is placed in your .h file.

  • Next, import the .avi file into your project. To do this, highlite your resource project name, and right click in the resource view window. Select import. Set the filter to *.avi, and select the avi file you want to import.
  • Enter "AVI" for resource type in the custom resource type dialog box.
  • Add the following code to your project:
  •  /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
     // CAvidemoDlg message handlers
    
     BOOL CAvidemoDlg::OnInitDialog()
     {
        CDialog::OnInitDialog();
        ...
        ...
        // TODO: Add extra initialization here
        m_avi.Open( IDR_AVI ); // open the avi resource.
        m_avi.Play( 0, -1,-1 );play avi resource.
    
        // return TRUE unless you set the focus to a control
        return TRUE;
      }
