Animation in SpecView can be done using Color Dynamics or Position Dynamics on objects or by using a graphical library of Active-X objects from a third-party supplier such as Software Toolbox.
Color Dynamics allows you to change the color of objects based on values from instruments etc, and each object can have several colors associated with it.
Using Color Dynamics together with Strategy Controller it is possible to make objects blink or disappear which can give the impression of movement.
Position Dynamics allows the position of objects on the screen to be changed according to the values from instruments etc.
Active-X objects can include flashing / rotating etc, depending on the vendor of the control.
