I am try to display gif images on the dialog like I do with bitmaps.However, Exagons's examples(http://exagone.cjb.net/) display gif files on whole dialog and use createwindowex to make dialog.I use .rc file for my dialog and I couldnt managed to display gif file for example here is my rc file to display bmp at 4,1,185,31 coordinates.

Hi LaptoniC, the e-mail addresses on my site aren't very reliable so you'd better use _thomas_@runbox.com as e-mail address. You can't use GIFs directly in a dialog like you would with bitmaps, you should either bitblt the bitmap on the dialog (handle the WM_PAINT message of the dialog like in my example with a normal window), or create an ownerdrawn static control (or button, can't remember), which you then draw by handling the WM_DRAWITEM message. If you have further questions just ask in this thread or mail me. Thomas
