Tip: Show Animating Image in a WebBrowser Control During Document Download

Learn a quick way to use a picturebox and set an animated gif to it.


A quick way is to use a picturebox and set an animated gif to it. We can make use of the Navigating and Navigated events to show/hide the picturebox as shown below.

private void webBrowser1_Navigating(object sender, WebBrowserNavigatingEventArgs e)
   pictureBox1.Visible = true; 

private void webBrowser1_Navigated(object sender, WebBrowserNavigatedEventArgs e) 
   pictureBox1.Visible = false; 

This would show the animated image when you start navigation and would be invisble when the page has been downloaded.
