Splash Screen

Hi

I'm just looking at VB.Net and noticed something which I don't quite understand.

If you look at the properties of a project under Application there is an option "Splash Screen" in a drop down combo with "None" written in it.

Can anybody let me know how this is used?

Splash screens are often used to display information to a user while an application is loading.

See the following link for more information.

Thanks VipulKadia. That's so simple. Can you help with one further thing? I've added the Splash screen but I don't seem to be able to make it bigger. Any ideas?

Thanks - I realised afterwards that I had to change the Dock property to None (temporarily) to re-size the form.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?
