Hi,
You can see for yourself a sample animation that goes with VFP. If you are using VFP6, try the following:
1. In the Command window, type: do form home(2) + '\solution\solution'
2. Click 'View samples by outline'
3. Click ActiveX
4. The last item under ActiveX controls is 'Play an AVI file in an ActiveX control'. Double-click this to run the applet. You can see the code if you want through 'See code' button.

The sample uses an AVI instead of GIF but this should not give you a problem since there are a lot of softwares (even freewares) out there that you can create both AVI and GIF with and even convert from AVI to GIF format, vice versa.

Hth,
Dale
