Does Basic4ppc Images support animated gifs?

    Is there a way to use animated gifs that animate in basic4ppc. A .dll, etc.
    I did make a workaround version with a timer but it would be nice if B4PPC could actually support the regular animated .gif.

    .Net CF doesn't support animated gifs and Basic4ppc also doesn't support these files.

    As I could figure out, animated gifs are a bit like icon files...One file, many images...

    Although not directly supported, there are examples on the internet on how to use them in c#...

    I suggest a difgerent aproach...

    Basic4ppc does support retrieving images from a file using the binary library.

    It's not to dificult to see were i'm going with this, is it?

    Create a file containing the images that compose the animation, as in a gif file, add them to an imagelist array, and using a timer to control animation, rotate the imagelist array index in a picturebox, thus creating an animation...

    Almost like a gif, isn't it?

    P.S.:With any luck, maybe a new lib will came...
