    Hi
    It would be good to have the splash screen form that is part of your sample application available as a component for us to use in our applications.  

    I was going to reflect your assemblies, but decided that this would probably contravene the licence.

    Other features that would be useful would be to have dynamic text (text that could be set while the application is being loaded) as well as a progress bar to indicate where in the load the process is.

    Best regards

    Thank you for the suggestion, Marek. We have added your proposal as a feature request in our TO DO list.

    At present you could access our the splash component using the SplashForm class which is in the VisualStyleBuilder.Design namespace. You need to set the backGround image property of that splash form and then just call the show method. The current control is quite basic but we will improve it as we get more requests for this functionality.

    If you have any further proposals feel free to share them with us.


    Sincerely yours,

    Hello Andreas Lohr,

    In case you need a simple splash screen which fades in and then disappears when the main form is shown, the SplashForm is the solution for you. I am attaching a sample project which demonstrates the approach.

    Of course, you may want to show a splash screen containing a RadWaitingBar and dynamic text. This case, however, requires implementation from your side.

    If you have additional questions, feel free to contact me.

    Hi Teleik Team,

    Splash screens are the start of any good application 

    It is a very important control.If we could have that as telerik controls then what could be better than that.

    Right Now we don't have that facility 

    Please include splash form in you user controls

     

    Thanks 

    Regards,

    Hammad Rafique

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing.

    The following article explains in details how the splash screen can be created, it just uses a regular form and a picture box: Add SplashScreen to your application. 

    I hope this helps.
