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.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
