Rotary switch rotate image

#1 Post by nikyukuu » Sat Apr 03, 2021 11:58 am

Quick question: Is it possible for a rotary switch to use the same image for all positions with different rotation angles?

No, you'll have to create multiple images.

Not possible in the switch_add.
Yes it can be done. In the switch_add you use a nil for all the switch images.

Then you place your image where the switch is located.

I your logic you can rotate the image.
This is often used to animate slow action switches and buttons.

You can do the same if your switch is a canvas_draw()

Yes and No i guess is the correct answer. It really depends on the context.

Yes - Do as Keith describes and manage the image rotation yourself with some additional code.

No - Like Ralph posted, you need separate images if you are just using the switch_add() functionality.
