import Felgo 3.0
import QtQuick 2.0
title: "Animated Text"
// The ParallelAnimation starts all its child animation simultaneously
running: true // Start automatically
loops: Animation.Infinite // Repeat endless (unless stopped)
target: label // The animated item id
property: "rotation" // The animated property
from: 0 // Start value. If not defined, the current value is used
to: 360 // End value
duration: 1000 // Duration of the animation
Images, Photos, Audio and Video
