After researching the forums for an answer to splash screens issues, I’m still lost as to how to keep my progress bar moving in the splash screen
I initially started by making the splash screen the main window. It opens and initiates two timers. One to increment the progress bar and one to call my main app in another window for a startup sequence which takes about 15 seconds cycling dampers, gathering temperature reading, loading data, etc. The progress timer in the splash screen does as it should, incrementing the progress bar but when the timer for the startup sequence in another window is called the progress bar stops while the startup sequence completes its task.
When the startup sequence finishes the other window opens which closes the splash screen as desired.
I have since experimented with a thread but when I attempt to increment the progress bar from the thread an error tells me the thread can not manipulate a window control.
How might I keep the progress bar incrementing after the startup sequence is initiated in the other window?
