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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
