I Don't Know About it. Please Tell Me Some Hints.

Dnt set it as background instead use picturebox it will animate.

Still waiting for help because this code does not solve the problem

can u give more details on your problem? I tried it first and then posted the answer and ya it will not animate in design time but will animate in runtime only. Hope this helps u.

in runtime the splash screen not animate look like normal picture

Put a pictureBox on the form, and put gif animation inside of it.

I thank everyone who helped me have succeeded last method actually
But there is another problem, how can I make my period, which show Sblash screen. More time

use timer control by dragging it on your form. Then set its interval to desired time in miliseconds i.e. 1000= 1second
then in its tick event write the following code

Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
    Form1.Show()
    Me.Hide()
    Timer1.Enabled = False
End Sub

hey sorry guys for above post, even I need some help
as u can see I have used Me.hide()
but If I use Me.Close() all the process gets close

So can anybody please correct the above post????

i was use timer control by dragging it on my splash screen form. and i set its interval to desired time in miliseconds i.e. 4000
in the event i Doubled Click on the timer and write the cod,but i get this error
Cross-thread operation not valid: Control 'SplashScreen' accessed from a thread other than the thread it was created on."
