The AnimatedShapeCorona is very similar to the regular ShapeCorona, in the sense that it is rendered as a shape with various drawing related properties such as <shape>, <fillColour>, <strokeColour> and <strokeWidth>. What differentiates the AnimatedShapeCorona from its static AnimatedShape sibbling are the addition of Animation Properties allowing to animated the rendered shape.
The mandatory<shape> tag specifies the geometric shape to be used to render the corona.
The optional<fillColour> tag specifies the colour to be used to fill the shape. If omitted, the fill colour will be set to gray.
The optional<strokeColour> tag specifies the colour to be used to fill the shape. If omitted, the fill colour will be set to gray.
The optional<strokeWidth> tag specifies the width of the stroke used to draw the outline of the shape using the colour specified by the <strokeColour> tag.
The opacity property controls the translucence of the drawn shape. By animating this property, scenario designers may create blinking or flashing behaviour.
The scale property controls the size of the drawn shape and allows creating zooming effects.
