No you cannot, you can however view it in the webbrowser control. If you add the Microsoft Internet Controls component to your project and then place a webbrowser control on the form you can do this:

WebBrowser1.Navigate2 "c:\documents and settings\ticotte\my documents\my pictures\gate_swing_md_wht.gif"

For example to display an animated GIF.

Why was that deserving of a 'C' grade? Just because it cannot be done easily doesn't mean the answer is any worse. If you continue to grade in this manner you are likely to lose input from many experts.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Could you please explain why expert TimCotte only received a "C" grade for his answer? Please provide feedback if you are not happy with an answer and our experts will try to clarify their comments.
Here are the guidelines for grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing
requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

I can understand that it doesn't help much as the simple fact is that these controls do not support animated gifs. I have given two solutions that can be used instead which is as much as you would get from anyone. If you had waited for other input before accepting a comment I believe that you would have got the same answers. That said the answer as such is not worth a 'C', I would have accepted a 'B' as this seems to be a default though of course I would prefer an 'A'.

You can't change the grade yourself, but you can always ask me to change the grade of Tim's answer. Just let me know to what ... 'A' or 'B' ? No 'F' please :-)
