GIF Image in Silverlight


We wanna show a gif image in silverlight plugin, so, we created a custom control to do it, but the control is very worse. I think, lots of silverlight developers need to show gif, so, please create a sample code and share it. I am so sorry because my English is not good.
Thanks! To every silverlight developers.

Hello tiscs

Thank you for using our sample request service ( !

Your English is good.

You can consider using the .NET Image Tools library for Silverlight. This library is free to use and available on Codeplex. It implements different image file formats, including the ability to load GIF files and even animated GIF files.
Please let me know if this library is helpful to you.

It is a 3rd party open-source project, so code samples about how to use it are provided by the project owner.
