The splash panel is a panel-derived class that allows users to design custom splash screens within a form’s designer. The splash panel can take multiple child controls that can be used to display information or collect information from the user.
The splash panel class is a panel class that can be used beyond the typical splash screen. It can be used to create non-obtrusive message boxes such as in the Microsoft MSN messenger (similar to MSN Messenger version 3.0), a message window that informs a user that a new mail message has arrived. These kinds of message boxes are very easy to create and use with the splash panel class.
