I call splashcontrol from mainForm, but at the same time main form is visible?

Please set HideHostForm property to true.

this.splashControl.HideHostForm = true;

Please let me know if this works for you. Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

This works, but on the main form I'm calling login form, witch should be in front of the main form, but after splashcontrol it isn't.

Should I put splash control on login form?

Yes, you have to place the splash control on the login form to display it before showing the login form.

I tried that, but now login form is out of focus, and main form is enabled, what shouldn't be before i close login form.

Sorry for the delay in response.

Inorder to display the splash before showing the login form,you can call the Login Form from the SplashClosed event of the splashControl.While calling the Login Form,give as ShowDialog () so that be mainform will not be displayed before you close your login form.

// splashControl1
this.splashControl1.CustomSplashPanel = null;
this.splashControl1.HostForm = this;
this.splashControl1.HostFormWindowState = System.Windows.Forms.FormWindowState.Normal;
this.splashControl1.TimerInterval = 1000;
this.splashControl1.UseCustomSplashPanel = false;

this.splashControl1.SplashClosed += new System.EventHandler(this.splashControl1_SplashClosed);
private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
this.splashControl1.ShowSplash (false);
this.splashControl1.HideHostForm =true;


private void splashControl1_SplashClosed(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
Login lg=new Login ();
lg.ShowDialog ();


I am attaching a sample that is created in our latest version 4.3 and .net Framework 1.1.Please let me know if you have any difficulties to follow.


Thanks for your patience.

I tried this code but it still isn't what I want.
Maybe I don't explain very well, but what I want is that after showing the splash control I want to see both login and main form. The only difference is that main form should be behind login form, and when i close login form main form comes in focus.
