I'm trying to customize a boolean with aa animated gif, but when I import tha animated gif to the control, LabView displays the following error message: Corrupt file or invalid picture type - File used by another application - Not enough memory.
But the same file opens normally in IE ou FileFox.
Can anyone give me a suggestion?
Is there a recommend site to generate animated gif?
Thanks for the help in advance.
Hi robertocsp, I havent seen this error message before when importing animated GIFs. If you are able to share your GIF with me I can take a shot at customizing a boolean for you.
I have seen this many times. Apparently to LabVIEW not all animated GIFs are created equal! I don’t know enough about animated GIFs and LabVIEW’s rendering of them to tell you what the issues are, but I have seen about 1/3 of animated GIFs cause that error. I have not been able to get around it. I know of no way to re-render the GIFs for LabVIEW to understand. I do know that this site (http://tools.dynamicdrive.com/animatedgif) works well to create animated GIFs for LabVIEW. It also maintains the fidelity of the images quite well, is free, and is very easy to use.
Unfortunately this site generates an output gif file with black background and I'd like a transparent one.
Do you suggest any other site to create a gif file?
Hmmmm...I am not convinced any of the online generators will support transparency, but you could try. Unfortunately I have no suggestions for you. I have used a couple of freeware products (Beneton Movie GIF and Easy GIF Animator). Neither imports to LabVIEW without the error. I would search for online animated GIF creators and test several of them out for transparency and import into LabVIEW.
