Problem with gif Image usage

We have a rotating gif file in our application. While submitting the form, the rotation is getting stopped. Once the form submission is completed, image is starting to rotate. But we need to maintain the rotation while form submit action also. Can anyone suggest ideas to solve this?

Thanks in Advance

Use Frames, so that image would be in different iframe and page in different. This will help image rotation to be independent of page submission.

There is no way to do anything about it in the regular page. As the other rancher suggested, it would have to be done with frames/iframes.

Is this an animated GIF, or is it a static image that is rotated through scripting?
