"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

what does third pary controls? you mean the OLE control?
Check out and search for animated gif cause I saw some source code that showed animated gifs. When I tested it it was not quite done cause it flickered but I think I saw some improved posts comming in later.
I have a freeware animated GIF control. If you want it, leave me your e-mail address.
