Splash screen

Post icon  Posted 18 May 2009 - 11:07 AM

I have this:
 My.Application.MinimumSplashScreenDisplayTime = 10000


which I reckon should keep the splashcreen open for 10 secs but it doesnt - infact nothing does.

so my question is how do you keep the splashcreen open for longer?


the above code is in the splashcreen form loading events and i think that that is the issue but where elses can I put it?

You can make your splash screen the startup form, rather than the splash screen, and then add a timer which ticks every 15 seconds (or whatever) which closes the form, and opens the main one.

It has exactly the same effect, unless you need to do that for a specific assignment, I suggest you use it.
