hi objects

here is the code:
public void pictureShow(String ImageID) {

   Animator animator = new Animator(5);
   int[] emptyBuffer = new int[imw*imh];

    getResource(ImageID);
   
       try {
               im = createImage((ImageProducer)url.getContent());
               mt.addImage(im, 0);
               mt.waitForID(0);
              }
          catch(Exception e) { e.printStackTrace(); }

    flag = false;  //whether the picture has been fully showed;

          imw = im.getWidth(this);
          imh = im.getHeight(this);
    //emptyBuffer = new int[imw*imh];
    thisPicture = new Picture(imh,imw);
          allPixels      = new int[imw*imh];
          offscreen = createImage(imw, imh);

          mis = new MemoryImageSource(imw,imh,thisPicture.pixels,0,imw);

          mis.setAnimated(true);
          animatedImage = createImage(mis);

    GrabPixel();


          animator.start();
}

bad code, but hope you can help me

hi,there

class Animator extends Thread {
          private int numBoxes, curx, cury, curw, curh;
          private boolean showing = false;
          private Graphics g;
    private int[] emptyBuffer = new int[imw*imh];

          public Animator(int numBoxes) {
               this.numBoxes = numBoxes;
          }
          public void run() {
               while(true) {
                    if(isShowing()) {
          //if (showing) boxIn();
           //else
           boxOut();
                         //showing = showing ? false : true;
         // pause(1000);
                     }
               }
          }
     
          private void boxOut() {
               mis.setFullBufferUpdates(false);


               while(curw < imw && curh < imh) {
                    curx = imw/2 - curw/2;
                    cury = imh/2 - curh/2;

                    for(int i=0; i < curh; ++i) {
                         System.arraycopy(allPixels,
                                             (cury+i)*imw + curx,thisPicture.pixels,
                                             (cury+i)*imw + curx, curw);
                    }
                    mis.newPixels(curx,cury,curw,curh);

                    curw += imw/numBoxes;
                    curh += imh/numBoxes;

                    pause(50);
               }
               System.arraycopy(allPixels, 0, thisPicture.pixels, 0, imw*imh);
               mis.newPixels();
      flag = true;      //the picture has fully showed;
          }

hello object

infact with these code the picture can be showed. also there is other code like, but i think it's not the problem exists:

  public void GrabPixel()
  {
           try {
                pg = new PixelGrabber(im, 0, 0, imw, imh,
                                              allPixels, 0, imw);
               pg.grabPixels();
          }
          catch(InterruptedException e) {
               e.printStackTrace();
          }
   }

     public void update(Graphics g) {
        paint(g);
     }
     public void paint(Graphics g) {
          Graphics      offg = null;
          Dimension      size = getSize();
          try {
             offg = offscreen.getGraphics();
       offg.clearRect(0,0,size.width,size.height);
                 offg.drawImage(animatedImage,0,0,this);
                g.drawImage(offscreen,0,0,this);

          }
          finally {
               offg.dispose();
          }
     }

hope can help you some.

I noticed that you create your offscreen image the same size as the loaded image.

> offscreen = createImage(imw, imh);

But then later you clear it using the size of the component.

> offg.clearRect(0,0,size.width,size.height);
               
Not sure if this is a problem or not.

Can you explain in more detail what your problem is to help me understand what is happening.

hello object,

i have a button on the applet, whenever i pressed it,it will invoke the procedure showPicture(), that is a new image will change the old one. but i notice if the old one is more large then there is still part of the image left on the canvas,only when i minimize or maximize the applet can it dispeared.

as the offscreen , speak the truth, i'm not quite clear about its function, i copy it from a reference book which can animate show picture.but it work well in a single picture.

and object, i notice whenever a showpicture run there will be a new MemoryImageSource created, is it will eat many resource of the computer? i find when more picture showed the computer will slow down or even dead.

> will slow down or even dead.

That could be a thread problem. A new Animator thread is created for each picture and that thread does not appear to ever complete.

Your paint problem is related to the image/component size inconsistency I mentioned above.

Try changing:
offg.clearRect(0,0,size.width,size.height);
to just:
clearRect(0,0,size.width,size.height);

The old image won't be gotten rid of until animateImage is updated. So you need to call repaint() after you assign a new value to animateImage.
