Hello everybody,

I have a gif image, which loop one time and it stop.

I load that image into the picturebox.

My problem is that the image keep looping. I want it to stop after it loop the first time. How can I do that ?

I use the following code to load the image.

thanks.

I wrote following code :
VB
Dim y As New System.Guid
Dim x As Drawing.Imaging.FrameDimension = New Drawing.Imaging.FrameDimension(y)
y = PictureBox1.Image.FrameDimensionsList(0)

Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
   If PictureBox1.Image.SelectActiveFrame(x, 0) = 19 Then
      PictureBox1.Enabled = False
      Timer1.Stop()
   End If
End Sub

And this error occurs:
A generic error occurred in GDI+.

Data on how fast the image animates and whether to loop or not is embedded in the image itself, and the PictureBox cannot access this directly.

However, the ImageAnimator object, found in the System.Drawing namespace, can access it. I don't have any experience using it so I cannot provide any code for you, but you should be able to find information and examples on the web.

It's better to post more information (like this code) by clicking the Improve Question link, and adding it to your original question. That way everyone who reads the questions sees it right away. I copied it for you this time.

Let's start with a simple advice: forget PictireBox and never remember. Everything else goes next.
