Animation files

Knox Configure for wearables require animation files to be in EDJ file format as opposed to the QMG file format for smart phone animation files.

Create animation file

To create an .edg animation file for Knox Configure for wearables, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Tizen Studio.
  2. Select the template: Basic UI with EDC.
  3. Open the project and res/edje/(project_name).edc.
  4. Under the EDC editor's settings, set your animation to the image path:
    • The default path is set to (project_name)/edje/images.
  5. Create the EDC file as shown in the following example:
    • A header file can be used to include image files.
    • //project_name.edc file images { image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_01.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_02.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_03.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_04.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_05.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_06.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_07.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_08.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_09.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_10.png" COMP; image:"/images/Tizen_power_on_11.png" COMP; Copyright © 2017 Samsung Electronics Co.
