The new V4.00 animation commands are a great additional to B4A.
To compliment these it would nice to have the same option for the individual View positioning commands Left, Top, Width, Height.

B4X:
myView.SetLeftAnimated(Duration As Int,Position As Int)
myView.SetTopAnimated(Duration As Int,Position As Int)
myView.SetWidthAnimated(Duration As Int,Position As Int)
myView.SetHeightAnimated(Duration As Int,Position As Int)
It's just a passing thought really, which I had when rewriting my code. For example, right now, my code to moved views up an back down look like this:

B4X:
MyView.SetLayoutAnimated(AnimSpeed,MyView.Left,-MyView.Height,MyView.Width,MyView.Height) ' off screen
...
MyView.SetLayoutAnimated(AnimSpeed,MyView.Left,10dip,MyView.Width,MyView.Height) ' back on screen
With the new functions the amount of typing is reduced:
B4X:
MyView.SetTopAnimated(AnimSpeed,-MyView.Height) ' off screen
...
MyView.SetTopAnimated(AnimSpeed,10dip) ' back on screen
Granted its very easy for me to write subs to take care of this but it would be nice to have these has native animation options.
