The code sample demonstrates how to implement an animated GIF image in WPF.


GIF images are deprecated in WPF due to the imperfect scaling ability.

In WPF MediaElement could show animated GIF images with some less desirable limitations:
1. The Source property must be set with absolute path;
2. Play-back functionality is not supported by default;
3. Transparent pixels display as black.

This sample is intended to show how to implement a simple and efficient animated GIF image control in case this might be a better alternative in some situations.
