Animated GIFs in a VB6 Form

Can I put an animated Gif in a VB6 form? How? I put it with the Picture control but it shows only the first image of the animation.

"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.

Go to, I saw some code to show animated gifs there before. The code I tested was flickering but since then there has been some new improved code there that is supposed to fix that. ;)

If you find it okay, just let me know and I'll repost the comment as an answer.
You can use the WebBrowser control to show the gif on your form with the navigate method.  
WebbrowserX.navigate [filename]

Hope this helps.
