    @cvp Of course not, the whole code worked, it only needed a bit of pumping up the image. Thanks again!

    Fantastic view from wall to wall. Thank you very much!
    And you're right, the site is pretty slow. Nevertheless, good answers are always in time...

    Here the same result with your code for the imageview. When I bypass GifInView and load a png in my pyui with r['imageview1'].image = ui.Image.named('./gif/image.png'), the picture fills the whole frame.

    Succes, looking forward to a solution!

    Part of the py:

    class GifInView(ui.View):
        def __init__(self,view,gif_file):
            self.ImageView = ui.ImageView()
            self.pil = Image.open(gif_file)
            wi,hi = self.pil.size
            wiv = view.width
            hiv = wiv * hi / wi
            self.frame = (0,0,wiv,hiv)
            # In a GIF file, each frame has its own duration
            # assume here all frames have the same duration 
            self.update_interval = self.pil.info['duration']/1000
            self.frame_id = 0
        def pil2ui(self,imgIn):
            with io.BytesIO() as bIO:
                imgIn.save(bIO, 'PNG')
                imgOut = ui.Image.from_data(bIO.getvalue())
            del bIO
            return imgOut
        def update(self):
            # Display individual frames from the loaded animated GIF file
            self.ImageView.image = self.pil2ui(self.pil)
            self.ImageView.content_mode = ui.CONTENT_SCALE_TO_FILL
            self.frame_id = self.frame_id + 1
            if self.frame_id >= self.pil.n_frames:
                self.frame_id = 0
    # knop regenradar
    def knopje(sender):
        uri = 'https://api.buienradar.nl/image/1.0/radarmapnl/gif/?hist=0&forc=36&width=550&l=1&step=1'
        with open('./gif/radar.gif', 'wb') as f:
        r = ui.load_view('Radar')
        if ui.get_screen_size()[1] >= 768:

    The link to the gif:
    link text

    The result is an animated gif displayed, but too small for the imageview (about 1/4th).

    @cvp I pasted class GitToView into my program, made an imageview, downloaded an animated gif and displayed it. It works, the animation runs fine. But...

    The gif is about 450 x 450 px, the imageview as well, the displayed version is about one/third of the original. When I move the x,y of the imageview, the gif moves with it.

    I don't understand what happens in the class, so I can't solve the problem. Can you point out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

    @cvp Thank you for both tips. The second one would make it possible to see the raindrops fall. I’ll think about that 😀

    @cvp It works! With gifs as well. Thank you very much, your answer was very clear.

    I'm new to Python and to Pythonista. I'm working on a program that fetches data and put the results in a view. I made a design in the UI Editor, it consists labels for textual results and Image Views for icons.

    My problem is to put icons in the Image Views. I have a map consisting gifs. An ImageView icon points to the IOS images like alert_24 (the !). Can I redirect it to my map of gifs?

    To put text in a label I use: v['label1'].text = placeDate
    Can I do something similar to put icon therm.gif in imageview9?

    Thank you very much for your help,
