I am hiding the status pane by setting the applicatin container to whole screen like here:

iAppContainer->SetExtentToWholeScreen();

The Status pane is still shown for a short time until the first application view is shown on the whole screen.

How can I show an image at the beginning of the application for a few seconds instead of the status pane? Is there a way to customize the status pane to show only one picture for the whole screen?
