    Hello, I bought the UI for WP8, and it's great, I just can't figure out how to set up a SplashScreen like in the Examples app.

    I opened the Examples project and I tried to understand what was going on there, but I didn't manage to replicate the loading screen user control in my app. Is there a guide on how to achieve that?

    Otherwise, I tried to create a new page in my app, with a RadBusyIndicator enabled at the center of it.
    I set that page as the default navigation page, and the idea was to navigate from there to the MainPage.xaml.

    The point is, as the MainPage takes a couple of seconds to load, is there a way to preload it before navigating to it?
    I can't figure out how to do it.

    Thank you!

    Hello Sergio,

    We do not offer guide for building interactive splash screen. Nevertheless, you can check this guide and this article - explaining how to create interactive loading screen in two scenarios. And of course, you can use WP examples source code as refference.

    The main idea is to load on background any non UI resources and add any UI content using dispatcher under the Loading UserControl, then hide it.
