    to an applet in java with init() and paint() methods?

    thanks.

    Are you looking for a way to draw the actual image manually using paintComponent, or just wish to display the animated gif? If the latter, create an ImageIcon of the image and add it to a JLabel...Swing will do the gif animation for you.

    Actually no it didn't work. When I try to add the ImageIcon to the JLabel, it says no applicable overload..

    Clearly not the JLabel constructor.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
