Labview Animation Control or indicator

You can replace individual elements of controls with GIFs too.

I once replaced the pointer in a horizontal point slide with an animated GIF to make a custom progress bar.

In my application I opted for a GIF of two turtles engaging in sexual congress.

Neat idea editing the control itself.  But that solution is only going to work if you don't mind having no control over the GIF and don't mind looping, and if you don't need to update the GIF at runtime based on an existing file.  The demo I showed saved the GIF as a constant in the block diagram because it is faster, but I have some disabled diagram code that will instead read the GIF from a file.  It then will play the first half of the GIF, then wait for the saving to finish (random number) then play the second half.  Is there a site where simple animations like this can be used for free?  Also back saved to 2016.

Glad it helped.  Is there a repository somewhere of these types of gifs?  I'd love to have a library of controls or something.  Like I mentioned a QControl can probably handle this well.
