in the bar-descriptor xml file I have
Is there some attribute that can be added to extend the length of time the sreen is shown? I'm using Qt. Perhaps a QSplashScreen?

Don't believe there's a way to do this automatically. We did it manually by blitting the screen with the splash screen and fading it out once the app was ready to take over rendering.

Many thanks for your reply. That's an interesting approach with the screen blitting and manual fading. I wonder if you're able to point me towards some sample code that can achieve this. No worries if not. Thanks for your help,

In our particular case, it was an OpenGL application (just noticed your QT tag).
We would just load the appropriate splash.png using libpng to a GL texture and draw a full screen quad. This would result in the system splash screen fading down to itself. I suspect in Qt that you may be able to do something similar but I am not too well versed in that universe.
