1. How do I load an animated gif into VB? (Are there any FREE custom controls or whatever coding?)
2. Yes, some idiot mentioned in the archives about converting it into an AVI and loading it straight using OLE, I suppose.
If so, how do I get rid of that stupid status bar showing the progress of the animation?
Thanx.

lyc,

If you success to convert GIF to AVI why you load it using OLE ?

Use Animation control in Microsoft Windows Common Controls-2 (COMCT232.OCX).

Example:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
 Animation1.AutoPlay = True
 Animation1.Open "c:\myfile.avi "
End Sub


Best regards

Nope... it doesn't work...
My compression of AVI is different from what the animation control wants, that's why i have not been using the animation control.
Thanks for your help anyway...
P/S The question is mainly about gifs!

Thanx, although that is shareware, it will do.
zsi: Thanks for your rather sarcastic remark, but I mantain my stance.
