Splash window is obscured by the application mainframe
Posted on 2004-03-25
I am working on an application that takes a long time to load.
So I kind of need the splash window I made.
Well, it only makes sense to launce the splash window (based on JWindow) as soon as
possible, that is directly after starting in main().
Some seconds later the main frame (based on JFrame) becomes visible and obsures the splash
that must remain visible until the application is fully operational; that is about 15" later (it's very large).
Even things like Splash.toFront(); don't work.
Only minimising the main frame reveals that the splash is still sitting there.
What can I do?
One workaround is to display the splash (also) somewhere in a JPanel but that's a bit stupid.
