  I know how to add a bitmap into the form, but I can't add an animated gif file into that form although the toolbar there got an icon named 'animated'. After I clicked and drag a box, what should I do next??
  Can anyone give me some idea?? (more details please)

That refers to an animation control that supports AVI files only. You can use the following control.

A control for displaying animated gif images

Or you can use the WebBrowser control that comes with IE.
