    Hello, i am using the SplashForm component, but am having some problems when running my software on a virtual and/or remote client.

    The splash-screen itself takes about a minute to load and you can see the transparancy changing line by line, frame by frame.
    I think it is very poor graphics performance that causes the problem. 

    I can think of 2 possible solutions:
    1. No animation at all, just a simple image.
    2. Abort the animation just before the splash.Close()-call

    Is any of these possible with the SplashForm-control?

    Thanks in avance,

    Hello Joel Sanderi,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Currently these options are not available for the SplashForm. We will consider implementing a better API that controls the animation in one of our upcoming releases.

    If you do not want to use the animation, you can safely switch to a standard Form for displaying the splash screen of your application.

    Thank you for reporting this issue and for your suggestions. I have updated your Telerik points. Do not hesitate to write us back if you have further questions.

    Sincerely yours,
    the Telerik team
