I already have an application built and have thought about adding a splashscreen to it.
I have searched the net and seen various different approaches to displaying the splashscreen and have only had limited success with one that I found.
This particular approach used Threading and was supposed to display the splash for 3secs and then sleep for 1sec before starting the main form. For some reason though it displayed the splash then after about 3secs the main form loaded below it and the splash screen stayed on top.
I have also found another example on this forum here, although when I ran the source code from the zip file it worked perfectly , I implemented all the changes onto my own project and all that happened was that the splashscreen and the main form started at the same time.
All I want is for my splash to display for a few seconds then fade out and load the main form.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
