Opening an intro

I want that when my program opens there should be first an introductry picture with name stuf just like when say Word open there is a popup which say Microsoft Word 2000 etc.
i tried to open the Powerpoint file i made by making a form with the whole area of Picture box and linked it to form load.. but it opens just like another form that is with a small x button n minize/maximize button at the top right. i want just the picture. and i want to controll the time it is displayed before teh actual programm starts.
i hope i made my self clear.

RE: Opening an intro

Insert a Splash form in your project. Insert the picture. Then, from your startup function:

Sub Main()
    Dim StartTime As Single

    'Show the splash screen

    'Hold it for 2 seconds
    StartTime = Timer
    Do While Timer < StartTime + 2

    'Do your stuff

End Sub

While I welcome e-mail messages, please post all thread activity in these forums for the benefit of all members.

RE: Opening an intro


You can set the CONTROLBOX property of the form containing you graphic to false.  There may be some other properties but this one turns off the header of the form.
