Boat in an ocean :-) JavaFX !

OK, nothing to laugh. I know my animation sense is little poor. But here I tried to move a ship, in the way they show in movies -D. Nothing like that, I have tried to give a sinusoidal movement of a ship. In the comment section, you can see there is a sea image as well. Animation was looking little ugly with sea, so I removed it :-). But point to note, you can give any animation to a image based on any mathematical methods. And if you have a complex equation, you can fit that in, in place of my simple sin curve. Here is the code:

package move;

import javafx.application.Frame;
import javafx.application.Stage;
import javafx.scene.paint.Color;
import java.lang.Math;
import javafx.animation.KeyFrame;
import javafx.animation.Timeline;
import javafx.scene.image.ImageView;
import javafx.scene.image.Image;

var time : Number = 0.0;


var timeline : Timeline = Timeline {
    repeatCount: Timeline.INDEFINITE        
    keyFrames : 
        KeyFrame {
            time : 5ms
            action: function() {
                time += 0.02;
            }                
        }
};
Frame {
    title: "MyApplication"
    width: 1200
    height: 500
    closeAction: function() { 
        java.lang.System.exit( 0 ); 
    }
    visible: true

    stage: Stage {
        fill: Color.AQUA
        content: [
     /\*       ImageView {
                image: Image {
                url: "http://birdblog.merseyblogs.co.uk/sea21206.jpg"
                 }
            },
     \*/
            ImageView {
                x:bind(100 + time \* 10)
                y:bind(100 + Math.cos(time) \* 10)
                image: Image {
                    url: "http://lal.cas.psu.edu/Research/visualiz/images/boat.gif"
                }
            }
        ]

    }
}
timeline.start(); 

Just 3-4 drags from Netbeans 6.1 FX viewer :

1.  One Timeline and an action inside it.

2. One Frame.

3. One Image.

Thats it ! Set the code logic and rest leave all the work on binding :-). Quite simple, just that I am not able to make some good animation out of it !

Comments:

I can name at least a dozen very influential bloggers, who aren’t rabid Nokia or Blackberry bloggers who are influencers in business, large and small. And these folks haven’t had a chance to evaluate the E71 at all.
