Opening Screen

I saw on many many programs like Netscape, MsWord and many many more, an opening screen that shows until the program loads itself.
Delphi programs are many times takes plenty of time until it loads itself and it really boring, so an opening screen can be helpful.
Please tell me how to do it !!!

It's quite easy. In the main form's OnCreate event create and show the opening form, and then in the active event hide and destroy it.

Procedure TForm1.Form1Create(Sender:TObject);
begin
  openscreen:=topenscreen.create(nil);
  openscreen.show;
end;

Procedure TForm1.OnActivate(Sender:TObject);
begin
  openscreen.hide;
  openscreen.free;
end;
