photon animation code sample?

Does anyone have a code sample for an animation in a photon application? I somehow don’t understand the documentation under … /draw.html

completely. I have an OSContainer containing a polygon that i want to rotate. I added a timer to my project that calls its activation callback every 40 ms. I don’t understand the part with the widget database. How do i create such a database and how do i get my animation frames (the rotating polygon widget) into it? It would be nice if someone could provide me with a small code snippet or a suggestion of some kind.

Hey lanfeust,

You might wanna check out the eqip project (
There are some photon apps in there that make use of such things you
want (like the statusbar with the battery monitor on it).
