    Displaying Animated Gifs (VB6)

    Okay, I have a feeling this question has already been asked on a few message boards somewhere.

    I found these neat animated GIF files. Is there a way to display them on a visual basic form in animation mode?

    My guess is no, but I only say so so that those who defy my negativism will be provoked to post further on with a contrary opinion and sufficient code sample.

    If you're really desperate:

    1. Get yourself a gif animator (eg, Animation Shop which comes with Paint shop Pro)
    2. Use it to uload the indiviual images which make up the animated gif. Take note of the timings for each "cell".
    3. Use the timer control to change the image after set time intervals- the timings you noted in point 2.

    But that's a fair bit of work!

    That is a bit of work, not that I mind that, but I'll bet it takes up a lot of system resources.

    Very innovative, Jeoff
