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