Hi,
RE: Visual Basic .NET 2005 using .NET version 2.0.50727.42
Using Visual Studio 2005 with the latest service packs.

I am trying to display an animated GIF in a picturebox or on a form in visual basic .NET 2005
One strange problem I noticed is that not even JPG or PNG files will show properly.

Can someone please provide a simple example of how to display animated GIF ?

I am not using any size mode like stretch or zoom.

What appears are one of two things.

1 - A one color box where the image animation should be. usually grey.
2 - A transparent spot where the image should be, so I can see a box of the window behind the image ?
