SWFSprite -- Creates a movie clip (a sprite)


SWFSprite swfsprite ( void )


This function is EXPERIMENTAL. The behaviour of this function, the name of this function, and anything else documented about this function may change without notice in a future release of PHP. Use this function at your own risk.

swfsprite() are also known as a "movie clip", this allows one to create objects which are animated in their own timelines. Hence, the sprite has most of the same methods as the movie.

swfsprite() has the following methods : swfsprite->add(), swfsprite->remove(), swfsprite->nextframe() and swfsprite->setframes().

This simple example will spin gracefully a big red square.

Example 1. swfsprite() example

  $s = new SWFShape();
  $s->setRightFill($s->addFill(0xff, 0, 0));
  $s->movePenTo(-500, -500);
  $s->drawLineTo(500, -500);
  $s->drawLineTo(500, 500);
  $s->drawLineTo(-500, 500);
  $s->drawLineTo(-500, -500);

  $p = new SWFSprite();
  $i = $p->add($s);

  $m = new SWFMovie();
  $i = $m->add($p);
  $i->moveTo(1500, 1000);

  $m->setBackground(0xff, 0xff, 0xff);
  $m->setDimension(3000, 2000);
