Access MVP (2010-2015)


Create a Splash Screen (Simple)


To create a Splash Screen using a Form…

  1. Create a new Form
  2. In the Properties Sheet set…
    • Set the Border to None
    • Set Auto Center to Yes
    • Set Pop Up to Yes
    • Set Moveable to No (optional)
    • Set the Timer Interval to the amount of time (in milliseconds) you want the Splash Screen to stay open, i.e. 5000 = 5 seconds
    • In the On Timer Event Procedure place DoCmd.Close
  3. Save, close and double-click to reopen and test.  Click here to download a sample.

P.S. Splash Screens are especially handy if you want to preload some data before the database actually opens.
