Demonstrates how to use the Picture Ring control to create an animated picture.
This program shows how to animate a picture on the front panel using a picture ring (Pict Ring) control. The main VI (animation.vi) cycles through the included sequence of pictures, where each picture represents a "frame" of the animation. By programmatically incrementing the value of the picture ring, the picture appears to be animated. The speed that the ring increments can also be adjusted, making the animation slower or faster.
