Using an animated GIF file with the Visual FoxPro image control, only the first frame of the animated GIF appears. This is also true for other areas of the product that support GIF images.

CAUSE

Visual FoxPro does not support the animated GIF format. Only the GIF version 89a file format is supported.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
