Re: Accessing GIF Frames and Displaying GIF Images/Animations

I don't think that GDI+ v1.1 needs a special initialization or manifest but let me check it out. I will reply as soon as I've some results... You are right - I've tested it now with GdipFindFirstImageItem, one of the very few new functions. In my XP VM, GetProcAddress returns zero, while Win7 finds...

May I ask what you are using as a manifest? I've never been able to activate version 1.1

Re: Accessing GIF Frames and Displaying GIF Images/Animations

I will add an example how to add images (frames) to a GIF file That sounds interesting. SOF says that "it is not possible to create Multi-frame or Animated GIFS using GdiPlus.dll version 1 image encoders. The SaveAdd method which can be used to add frames to a multi-frame TIFF image does not w...

Re: Accessing GIF Frames and Displaying GIF Images/Animations

Great job, UEZ! In the meantime, I also got inspired by this post and wrote Save frames of a GIF file - under the hood there are many functions that I see in your version, too ;-)

Re: Unable to access fb.net forums

The question is whether the forum software allows such a setting. Obviously, spammers want to place links here, and technically it's easy to parse a post for "http" to determine if it's legit or not. But I have no idea whether an admin can insert some code to prevent posting.

It would discourage bots if new members simply were not allowed to enter any links for publicity, scams etc until they've reached one week of membership.

You have a point there, dodicat, but otoh far too many posts in this forum deal with ...

Can you upload the text file somewhere, or at least post here a bigger example?

Right, that would be a big problem. In C, you would use break, though. Returning 0 means you don't let DefWindowProc do its job, which means no harm in most cases but occasionally Windows may bite you ;-)
