Stored procedures
Modifies the type and duration of animations used when opening and closing the next window.
  • To configure the animation that will be used when opening all windows, call WinAnimationOpening.
  • To configure the animation that will be used when closing all windows, call WinAnimationClosing.
// Select the animation
WinAnimationNext(waRotationMulti, 200)
// Open the window with the specified animation
// Close the window with the specified animation in reverse direction
WinAnimationNext(<Type of animation> [, <Duration> [, <Sound>]])
<Type of animation>: Constant
Type of animation to perform. The animation is performed in reversed direction when the windows are closed.
These types are classified by category and they can be combined (except for waDefault and waRandom).
  • Proposed by WINDEV:
    waDefaultDefault animation proposed by WINDEV.
    This constant cannot be combined with the other constants.
    waNoneNo animation is proposed
    waRandomA random animation is selected by WINDEV.
    This constant cannot be combined with the other constants.
    waVistaWindows Vista animation (combination of rotation, transparency and relocation).
  • Morphing:
    waBookThe plane of the window is displayed on a book that opens.
    waCircularFadeInThe window is displayed inside a disk whose size increases.
    waFountainThe window appears bit by bit, as if coming out of a fountain.
    waInterleaveThe four corners of the window merge while inter-penetrating.
    waMorphCylinderThe plane of the window is displayed on a cylinder that slowly changes into a plane.
    waMorphSphereThe plane of the window is displayed on a sphere that slowly changes into a plane.
    waMorphWaveThe plane window is displayed on waves that fade away.
    waTopFillingThe window fills from the top to the bottom.
  • Rotation:
    waRotationMultiThe window rotates around all axes
    waRotationXThe window quickly rotates around the X-axis
    waRotationYThe window slowly rotates around the Y-axis
    waZigZagZig zag effect
  • Transparency:
    waTransparent1The window transparency changes from 30 % to 80 %.
    waTransparent2The window transparency changes from 0% to 100%
    waTransparentFixedThe transparency remains the same (50%) during the animation.
  • Zoom:
    waZoomZoom from the click position to the final position (straight line and constant speed).
<Duration>: Optional integer or optional Duration
Duration of animation (in hundredths of a second). This parameter can correspond to:
  • an integer corresponding to the number of hundredths of a second,
  • a Duration variable,
  • the duration in a readable format (e.g., 1 s or 10 ms).
<Sound>: Optional character string
Name of WAV file that will be played during the animation.

Animation at opening

  • The animations performed during the opening are non-locking animations: the initialization codes can be run in parallel.
  • The animation is performed when the window becomes visible for the first time. You can use WinAnimationNext in the initialization code of the global variables followed by:
    MySelf.Visible = True


  • If a new window is opened during the animation, WINDEV waits for the end of animation before opening this new window.
  • The animation is not applied to the system windows (windows opened by fSelect, YesNo, ...).
  • WinAnimationNext has priority over WinAnimationOpening and WinAnimationClosing.
