Including animations in SAP reports

Do you know how to place an animated file at my report output? I used custom control at the output screen, but if I paste an animated pic there, it stands still. I wonder how SAP had put animation at the top right hand corner of its standard screens. If you have any helpful Web link related to that on the Web, that'd be great.

With custom controls, anything you can do with ActiveX you can do there; I believe you have the full access to the API. For why your animation is still, you'd have to ask and Active X expert!

The SAP animation is held in the bitmap SAPALOGO.BMP in your sapguithemesdefault folder. It is controlled by the theme.xml file.
