Animated GIFs (Gif 89a) on buttons

Does anyone know how to get animated gifs onto a command button in VB5, or know of an available OCX that will do this.

My current efforts were to place the WebBrowser control ontop of a button, but the scroll bars always appear and are not optional, and it's a pain in the backside to get the background of the browser to match the button.

Thanx Dalin, but none of those controls support GIF89a.

I have a custom control for AniGIF that supports the GIF89a format. Give me your e-mail address and I will send it to you.
The zip file also contains a VB5 sample project and a help file for using the OCX.
