The CW_ANIMATE_RUN procedure displays a series of images that have been loaded into a CW_ANIMATE compound widget by a call to CW_ANIMATE_LOAD.
CW_ANIMATE provides the graphical interface used by the XINTERANIMATE procedure, which is the preferred routine for displaying animation sequences in most situations. Use this widget instead of XINTERANIMATE when you need to run multiple instances of the animation widget simultaneously. Note that if more than one animation widget is running, they will have to share resources and will display images more slowly than a single instance of the widget.
This routine is written in the IDL language. Its source code can be found in the file
subdirectory of the IDL distribution.
A value between 0 and 100 that represents the speed of the animation as a percentage of the maximum display rate. The fastest animation has a value of 100 and the slowest has a value of 0. The default animation rate is 100.
