I'm using Visual Studio 2015, and I'm trying to create a simple Media Player application. I was wondering, however, if it is possible to use an animated GIF file for the Icon that displays in the top left corner of the application itself, as pointed out in this picture. The language I am using is C#. Can anyone tell me if this is possible, and, if so, how I would go about achieving this?
Simple answer, NO.
But you can create a sequence of icons that represent your animation and change them periodically to giv the user the sensation of animation. I just cant attest that it will be smooth enougth.
