Animated Gif Support

This library adds support for using animated GIFs as images in Codename One. It's based on this code but was adapted for simple usage in Codename One.

You can use the GifImage as any other image in Codename One:

Form hi = new Form("Gif", new BorderLayout());

try {
    hi.add(CENTER, new ScaleImageLabel(GifImage.decode(getResourceAsStream("/giphy-downsized.gif"), 1177720)));
} catch(IOException err) {
    log(err);
}
hi.show();

Notice that you need to pass in the length of the input stream that is decoded when opening a gif.

  • Loop checking inside animate() function yields sensible results for finite looped gifs.
  • Animate function no longer skips last frame.
