Hello,
Are any animation libraries included in the standard libraries? If so, what are they, please?
I'm just trying to figure out how to get things to move around in my applets. I've already written a few where something is displayed in some color, then it's displayed again in the background color (essentially making it invisible), displayed again a few pixels over, etc. It's somewhat cumbersome and I'm guessing that there's a better way - maybe a class somewhere that does all of the drawing and erasing for me, and lets me describe a path, or something of that nature.
Thanks for your input.
