Is it possible to convert a JPEG, GIF or any other image into the IVL format using the JViews library?
The information stored in the
.ivl format is not equivalent to the information saved in a bitmap file of type
.png and others.
A bitmap file format stores a grid of pixels with their colors, which define the bitmap data. An
.ivl file stores the contents of an
IlvManager, which is a more complex structure; it is a 2D space where heterogeneous drawings (
IlvGraphic objects) of different nature exist, composing a more complex rendering than a simple bitmap.
IlvManager can display a bitmap as an
IlvGraphic. This graphic is an
IlvIcon that you can add to the manager to display the contents of a bitmap file in the
IlvManager space. Example:
IlvIcon iconMap = new IlvIcon("background.jpg", new IlvRect(0, 0, 400, 400)); manager.addObject(iconMap, true);
