    As requested by Fhren Meza after seeing a sample video I posted on YouTube, here is a sample splash screen. In the end I abandoned the transparent background with fade to black because the very top title bar area always looks a little ametuerish. Anyhow, please see the attached project if wanting to re-create the look shown here...

    Thanks @nico78 I'm only just starting to use the designer and often over constrain things as shown by @LucaMs
    I only posted this because of a request made on YouTube, it's just meant as a simple starting point. Thanks for improving ;)

    I like your splash screen, but when it is finished and my main screen loads, the splash logo is still visible.
    How did I hide frmSplash?

    Sorry for the slow reply, I only saw your post this morning and was not near a computer.
    The easiest way is just to remove all the views from the Activity. The intention with this splash screen demo was that users would load their own Activities or Layouts once the splash had completed, but if you wish to remove teh splash image from the Activity you can do it like this....
    Sub Splash_End
        tmrSplashFade.Enabled = 
    End Sub

    This is working fine in my tablet LG G pad F 8.0 but the splash image is to small for the screen. How can I do to make the image proportional to the screen ?

    I'm not in front of a PC at the moment (using a tablet), but if I recall correctly the image is loaded in the designer making it easy to select a new image or you could use anchors or a script to size the image as needed for different sized screens.
