    Animated GIF's as back ground under push buttons in MFC

    Hi All,

    I have MFC form view application on which I have some push buttons. I want to display animated GIF's such water flowing from left tp right as back ground Image and on top this image I want to place my buttons. What I mean is push buttons has to be placed on animtaed GIF instead of default back ground.

    I check Add GIF-animation to your MFC and ATL projects with the help of CPictureEx and CPictureExWnd project in the link

    http://www.codeproject.com/KB/graphics/pictureex.aspx

    but when I am running the application the buttons are covered by GIF's .. I am unable to see the buttons ..

    Please let me know how to do this ...

    Set the tab order of the GIF to be indexed lower than the buttons.

    The tab order is used to determine the Z-order of the controls.

    Use IE COM to play animated GIF (nearly no code needed.)

    Hi Arjay...

    Set the tab order of the GIF to be indexed lower than the buttons ...

    by following your suggestion I changed GIF indexed as lower than the buttons but still my buttons are covered by GIF.. Is their anything any needs do other than lowering the index number of GIF ..

    Please let me know so that I can try that option .. Thank you very much in advance
