CDialog using animated control

CAnimateDlg (located in AnimateDlg.h/cpp) is a simple class derived from CDialog in order to implement user designed animated control. The user of the class has to call SetAnimationProperties() method and to pass to it the ID of the static control that will use as an animation control, number of frames in the "movie", array of bitmap IDs in the application resource and the time-slice between frame (to set the animation speed).
