SplashScreen.Show Method (Boolean)


Displays the splash screen.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public void Show(
	bool autoClose


Type: System.Boolean

true to automatically close the splash screen; false to close the splash screen manually.

Exception Condition

The resource specified in the constructor could not be found.

If you call the Show method with autoClose set to true, you do not have to call the Close method. The splash screen will close automatically after the application is loaded. When the splash screen closes, the length of time it will take for it to fade is determined by the default value for the fadeoutDuration parameter, which is 300 milliseconds.

Call the Show method with autoClose set to false when you want to provide a non-default value for the fade duration. You will have to call the Close method to close the splash screen.
