How to add an animated GIF? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just read another post recommending using an animated gif to display an animated loading wheel from www.ajaxload.info but I can't seem to insert the animated gif?  I have added the gif to my project but it does not appear in the list of assets?  Any ideas?

  • Silverlight doesn't support gif images.  In WPF, you should be able to drag it from the project panel to the artboard, and an image container will be created.

  • Thanks, but that looks a bit too complex for my usage in Sketchflow.
