Sorry. I meant run only once (instead of infinitely looping).

Solution

Hello 

There is a loop count property on a gif if that is empty then it loops forever. There are a lot of online tools that can set this property for eg https://ezgif.com/ 

Try to create a gif whose loop count = 1 and it should load only once. 

Trying this in a demo, will let you know if that works as expected.

Thanks! Just one follow-up question: why does my GIF not play every time it appears?

The first time my GIF appears, it plays. Subsequently, it appears, but remains static (as if played). Sometimes, when an input leading up to the GIF appearance is different, it plays again. What may cause this behavior?

Thanks!
