OOo... Animated GIFs... how do I begin... basically, they don't work in VB at this time. The best advice I can offer you is to find an ActiveX control somewhere and download it, but most of the ones I've ever found SUCK, or pop up a Splash Screen every few seconds unless you pay a ridiculous amount of money. I get around this by Opening my Animated GIF(s) in JASC's Animation Shop, Saving each frame as a seperate image, and using a timer in VB to animate them... it also gives me some omnicient power in dealing with my GIFs... But if anyone finds a free, un-crappy animated GIF Control, Please let me know! I hope I was of some help.
