It's not a multiple frame image no, just a BackgroundImage on the form, an index coloured png file at that, just to try and keep the file size down.
Basically i have made a card game and in the game you choose one of 5 options and depending on the option chosen dictates which backgroundimage is visible. It's basically to give it a nice GUI, instead of a plain colour.
I am starting to think that maybe the issue lies simple with my version of VB.Net.

Use the Process class and it's GetProcessesByName method to get the Process object for it. There is a MainWindowHandle property in that object. You use that handle and the Win32 API function EnumChildWindows[^] to get all of the child window handles and add them to your list. You then have to use EnumChildWindows again on each of those returned handles to get the child windows of that list of child windows, again, adding the new handles to the same list you're maintaining. Rinse and Repeat until you get to the end of your handle list.
Thanks, works like a charm... But i've got another question. I am trying to use FindWindowEx function to get a handle of the control i need, but i do not have a class name for that control. enumerating is stupid, i'd like to hard code it. Is there a way to know the class name?
I have a non-fullscreen and non-maximised program with a timer control that ticks over every 20 seconds performin a check on the time and comparing it to another time. It's function is irrelavent, thr problem i am having is that whenever the timer ticks over and the desktop (i.e. icons and taskbar) is visible, all the icons flash briefley and refresh. Is it possible to stop this desktop refresh when the timer ticks over.
