Hi,

I would like to make an animated icon for my application. It will show up on the title bar of the application, and when the app is minimized, it will be shown up in the Statusbar. I saw such example somewhere, But I can't find it now.

I did try to use CTimer to show different icons in turn, unfortunately, it didn't work.  

Does anybody have the code or a pointer to a code sample to do this?

Thanks for help in advance!

Hi, Gelbert:

I did looked at the website your recommended. It is a class to do the job. But I have found an easier way to make an animated icon for an application. It doesn't need an extra class because MFC is good enough to do it.

Thank you for your info,

Cheers!
