Article Review by savaj (20090904)

Usually all application need loading resource when it launches, splash screen is very useful to notify the user that the program is in the process of loading its resources or connecting to internet. Basically a progress bar within the splash screen indicates the loading progress.

There is no direct API is available to use as a splace screen in symbian. This article is very useful to implement splash screen in symbian, as it clearly describe how to implement splash screen.

Murugaprabum - Not much useful

This article doesn't provide info on how to create a mbm file. How to specify it in the project mmp file. For beginners, just the code is not useful.

Hamishwillee - @Neomaxpayne / @Murugaprabum

@Neomaxpayne As it states in the article "just construct it in your application user interface class and start a timer, and when the timer expires, just destroy the splash screen and start your application normal start screen." If you're using carbide.c++ to create a control based class then you should be able to add this where you currently create the main view control.

Plenty of examples around for that - Symbian C++ app framework classes

@Murugaprabum There are heaps of articles around on how to create an MBM file - I agree this would be better with a link to such an article. It would also be better with a downloadable zip file containing a buildable example. Feel free to add one!
