I was missing a cross platform, animated gif view, so created one.
Usage is simple:
Add with the visual designer and call SetGif to set the gif file.
The B4i implementation depends on FLAnimatedImage open source project: https://github.com/Flipboard/FLAnimatedImage
The FLAnimatedImage library was uploaded to the hosted builders. If you are using a local Mac then download FLAnimatedImage-Mac and copy the files to the Libs folder.
The B4A implementation is based on this open source project: https://github.com/koral--/android-gif-drawable
The two dependent aars are attached. Copy them to B4A additional libraries folder.
1.12 - SetGif2 - Allows loading an animated gif from an array of bytes.
1.11 - GIF image ratio is preserved.
1.10 - New B4A implementation based on Android GIF Drawable. It provides better performance. Note that the Activity_Resume method has been removed. Don't miss the B4A-Dependencies zip file.
