Is it possible to create a Splash screen with animation?

I am looking for a way to implement a customized Splash screen with animation but no clue right now.

 

Does someone know any idea to realize it?

 

Thank you

sure, just not with the built-in splashscreen.
we use a Sheet to display our splash screen.

You can't do that using the standard splash screen behaviour, as by definition those are implemented with static images.

What you can do, however, is take advantage of the fact that a well-crafted app can easily launch in less than 1s, and display its own animation.

You could have that animation start with the standard splash screen image, then seamlessly blend it into the rest of the animation, so from the user's perspective it's as though that initial image started changing after about 0.4s.

It may mean restructuring some of your app to ensure only those parts which are critical to getting that animation onscreen launch first.

Ok. I got both of your idea. Splash Screen -> Auto load customized screen with Animation -> Auto load main screen of the app. Thank you. I will have a try.

Hi! Peter.

 

I am wondering whether you could be able to review my another question

I tried to figure it out but I don't have any clue. It is so weird. Thank you so much.

I read most posts, and respond to any to which I have useful responses. ;-) (Already saw yours.)
