Allow developer to put animations like gif images or flash
Review the shockwave flash object and put a animated gif component.
An example for usage:
a) We can use little flash animations in splash screens
b) Animated gifs could be an option instead of progressbars (like the "loading" icons we see on web pages)
We do have a shockwave flash component - but at least here I can't make it work in Access 2013). The gif idea came from a customer.
When executing certain slow functions, queries, loading slow forms ... it would be nice to display a Loading gif for instance. And yes there are workaround, but they don't always work and the gif do not activate until the process actually runs first making them completely useless.
I've also been asked to incorporate such things in switchboard, and forms.
Just curious ... where do you envision using animated gifs ?
Considering Flash is being retired, this wouldn't make much sense. Animated Gifs though would be useful.
