When Windows is doing something that will take a while it often displays a scanning flashlight. I.E. a flashlight going back and forth as it would if a person were holding it and looking for something.
How does Windows do that and can it be done in .Net?
I know I could use a gif in a PictureBox but I am unable to find such a gif, on the Internet, or in my C:\Windows directory. Also, I used some tool to create what is supposed to be a flashing text gif and put it into a picture box but the text just
sits there, it doesn't flash/blink/animate.
(I know how to use a "busy cursor" but I am looking for something with more drama!)
