I did a quick test with Canvas, ImageWell, HtmlViewer, and MoviePlayer. The HtmlViewer and MoviePlayer worked perfect. The Canvas and ImageWell did not. HtmlViewer displayed it the best.
I had this on a button to grab and display the image
Dim fType As New FileType
fType.Name = "image/gif"
fType.MacType = "GIF"
fType.Extensions = "gif"
Dim f As FolderItem = GetOpenFolderItem(fType)
If f Is Nil Then
ImageWell1.Image = Picture.Open(f)
Canvas1.Backdrop = Picture.Open(f)
MoviePlayer1.Movie = f.OpenAsMovie
I had this on the HTMLViewer
Sub DocumentComplete(URL as String)
And this on the MoviePlayer
MoviePlayer1.AutoPlay = True
MoviePlayer1.Looping = True
None of this is truly my code. I just extracted from the following:
