Act as a browser!!!!


If I have a dialog-based application, how can I display a gif file at my application which is placed at web server.

Actually I don't know the exact path of the file where it places. I only know the www link to the file eg.

How can I display the file my.gif in my application by just knowing the www link of the file.

Can I implment like this?

Thanks for your opinion!!!!
