The slider method

led_green.bmp What we are going to do now is add a little LED-like display emitting a brief flash when changing states. Let's just go with the led_green.bmp from the cFos "Modern" skin for this section.

  [disp7]
  value=latency
  method=slider
  rect=111,50,117,56
  bitmap=led_green.bmp
  scale=2
  stepsize=1
  frames=3
  min=0
  max=2
  updatetime=200
  transform1=170,0,0,205,255,255,224,0,0,225,255,150
  transform2=0,0,0,10,255,255,225,190,140,226,191,141
This section displays the value of the latency parameter (see our skin definition reference page), which can either be 0 (low latency is off) or 1 (low latency is on). With scale set to 2, the original parameter is projected onto a range from 0 to 2. In combination with stepsize, frames, min and max, this will have the animation run through all of its three frames each time the original value changes from 0 to 1. Animation speed is controlled by the value entered for updatetime, which determines the time each frame is shown in milliseconds.

Color transformations are used here to correct some minor glitches in the original bitmap's shadow colors.
