In your frmMain's Form_Load event, add:

    frmSplash.Show
    frmSplash.Refresh

at the top.  Then, when the form is loaded and ready to go, just add:

    frmSplash.Unload

That should do it

Hi
frmMain.Load - load form (not display)
frmMain.Show - (display form. If not loaded then load it)
Cheers

frmMain won't show until the Form_Activate event - it is hidden during Form_Load.  Put all of your startup code in Form_Load.

I put in frmMain.load and I get a method or data member not found.  Am I missing something?
