Multi-Frame Animated GIF Images

While Storyboard animationsprovide a very power mechanism to create custom interactions, simple single image animations can be created using using the industry standard animated GIF format. Simply reference the animated GIF file in the standard image render extension and when the image is rendered for the first time it will start running the frames of the image. In the current implementation, animations specified as an animated GIF will loop forever. To stop the animation, change the image reference to a non-multi-frame image or mark the control as hidden.
