Animated Gif Player ActiveX with Full Source in VB6

For the newest version that supports Local Color Tables and Transparency visit my Website here:
NEW! Animated Gif Player ActiveX Control with full source code. Written completely in VB6, no third party or external DLL's required. This is a complete rewrite of my earlier code to display Animated Gif's. Full featured and fully debugged!

Original Author: Stephen Lebans


None Required. Includes a Class to call the API Windows File Dialog to get an Animated Gif filename.


The Animated Gif Player Class is wrapped within an ActiveX control for ease of use. It only uses 2 properties of the UserControl, BackColor and Device Context Handle. This means it is very easy to use switch these properties to that of a PictureBox control is you desire.

Side Effects

No apparent bugs or resource leaks. Tested extensively under Win95 and Win98. Tested opening more than 100 ANimated Gif's running continuously over a 24 hour period.
