31 XE3 quick videos in 31 days - Oct26 - Using the new Swipe Transition Effect

Posted by on in Blogs
RAD Studio XE3 and FireMonkey 2 includes a new transition effect and component, TFilterSwipeTransition class and TSwipeTransitionEffect component.  You can use this effect to peel back a corner of an image to reveal another image underneath.  The SwipeTransitionEffect component can be used in your Delphi and C++Builder applications and runs in Windows and Macintosh OS X. This quick video shows you two ways to use the SwipeTransitionEffect component: 1) Using a TPathAnimation to "turn the page" from one image to another and 2) Using the mouse to peel back an image to reveal another image from the four corners of the form.

Additional information about using FireMonkey image effects and the new TSwipeTransitionComponent is available in the help file and on the Embarcadero DocWiki at:
