Updated: July 2008

Closes the splash screen.

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

public void Close(
	TimeSpan fadeoutDuration
You cannot use methods in XAML.


Type: System.TimeSpan

A TimeSpan that specifies how long it will take for the splash screen to fade after the close operation has been initiated.

If you called the Show method with the autoClose parameter 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.
