Can we display image for some amount of time ? then hide it

Hi all,

 

Probably this is a stupid thing, I just want to display some GIF file in the second I click a button in my Apps. It'a a "fake" progress bar, which after some amount of time, lets say 5 second, I would like to hide again the GIF file.

 

Can we do that? or there is other way which more appropriate, but not difficult (coz I ain't developer)

 

Thanks,

It's not too difficult, you can use local variables and a Timer control.

 

Add the gif to your screen but set its 'Visible' property to a local variable, for example 'gifVisible'.
Add a timer control to your screen (Insert->Input->Timer) and set its 'AutoStart' property also to 'gifVisible' and the 'OnTimerEnd' to 'UpdateContext({ gifVisible: false })'.
In the OnSelect event of the button, use 'UpdateContext({ gifVisible: true })' to trigger everything: the update to the variable will cause the gif to become visible and the timer to start. And when the timer ends, it will update the variable again so the gif will be hidden.

 

That's the basic gist of it, at least.
