AutoIT Samples

AsciiPaint GIF Viewer

Code for the sample is available on github.

This application is an AutoIT sample leveraging the capabilities of the Consoul library (see documentation link below).

The Tuttenkammen image displayed by this AutoIT script is produced by code generated with the AsciiPaint Microsoft Access VBA application.

Of course, using a (Consoul) console window with a small font and feeding it a boatload of VT100 escapes that the Consoul library has to parse line by line to render it, is complete overkill. That's a demo; transparency and gif animation that actually happens underneath the transparent Consoul window are being tested here.
If you try to resize the window, go slowly, keep your finger on the mouse button and wait for the redraw...
