I am pretty sure .AVI files are involved but I dont know how to do it.

-- george

The easiest way to do this is with a picture object array...

(in form_load)
set objPics(0) = LoadPicture("Buttefly1.bmp")
set objPics(1) = LoadPicture("Buttefly2.bmp")

then in the timer event you cycle the images

Static intCount as integer
if intCount = 0 then
    intCount = 1
    intCount = 0
End if
PaintPicture objPics(intCount), 0, 0



i looking for the animation avi file and the code to play it in vb5 if searching ...
if no records are found...it will stop playing...
can anyone tell me how to do this?
