Does anyone have a sample of a VB.Net splash screen launched on a seperate thread?  I need it to be interactive while the main app loads a large dataset.  My poor attempts don't load until after the main app, and then immediately closes without user action...

try this

'add new form fmSplash ( it will be your splash screen)

Imports System.Threading

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "
#End Region

    Shared thrSplash As Thread


    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        Dim clsSplash As New cThreadSplash()
        thrSplash = New Thread(New ThreadStart(AddressOf clsSplash.thSplashDisplay))
        thrSplash.Start()
    End Sub
End Class

Public Class cThreadSplash
    Public Sub thSplashDisplay()
        Dim f As New fmSpalsh()
        f.Text = "Splash Screen"
        Try
            f.ShowDialog()
        Catch es As ThreadAbortException
            Thread.ResetAbort()
        Catch
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

Typo

Instead of

 Dim f As New fmSpalsh()
in the Public Sub thSplashDisplay()

write

 Dim f As New fmSplash()
                         ---------

iboutchkine's exmple appears to work in standalone project.  It is simpler than what I have been trying.  However the splash form does not appear until _after_ the main form in my real project.  Any ideas?

Hide Form1 when the thread starts and show after it finishes
