For animated GIFs you first need "GifImage", a free GIF library. Please see unit wpObj_Image.PAS fro more infos and how to activate the GIF support.

 

You then need a timer on the form and with it You call

 

procedure TWPWebBrowser.GIFTimerTimer(Sender: TObject);

begin

  WPRichText1.RefreshAniImages;

end;

 

Don't forget to set the ViewOption "wpUseOwnDoubleBuffer"

 

WPRichText1.ViewOptions := WPRichText1.ViewOptions + [wpUseOwnDoubleBuffer];
