public interface IAnimationProgressor
extends IProgressor, Serializable

Provides access to members that report progress using an animation.

Description

The IAnimationProgresor interface has methods for controlling the animation progessor. The animation progressor displays in the animation pane of a status bar. You can use the default spinning globe for the animation progressor or specify your own animation file (.avi). Use the IStatusBar::ProgressAnimation property to get access to the animation progressor.

Returns:
A com.esri.arcgis.system.esriAnimations constant
Throws:
IOException - If there are interop problems.
AutomationException - If the ArcObject component throws an exception.

openPath

void openPath(String animationPath)
              throws IOException,
                     AutomationException
Opens the AVI file specified in the path and displays its first frame. The AVI file specified must not contain audio.
