"Splash Screen" Help

Recommended Posts

ShadowOps

I haven't used Autoit for about 2 years now, and I can't remember a thing...

Anyway, I have a bunch of processes and programs that start up when I start my computer. They all take about 40 seconds to load once windows boots up. I was wondering if I would be able to make a "splash screen" that would cover the whole screen, like a screen saver, and display a ''loading...'' image for 40 seconds, then disappear. This way it looks more clean when I start my computer up. It would also be nice if some text could be "read" verbally too at the start of the load. Any help would be great! Thanks for helping this forgetful person!

P.S.

I would like the picture to be located directly in the C:\ drive, and the voice say "Welcome %username%", "%username%" being a replaceable parameter, which will get replaced by the user's name.

Take a look at 'SplashTextOn' or 'SplashImageOn' in the helpfile.

OK, I got a splash screen working, but how can I make it full screen? Is there a variable for the x and y screen resolution?

$destination ="C:\pic.bmp"

SplashImageOn("Splash Screen", $destination, -1, -1, -1, -1, 1)
Sleep(3000)
SplashOff()

And is there a variable for the system folder?

Its right there in the helpfile where you copied that script from

SplashImageOn ( "title", "file" [, width [, height [, x pos [, y pos [, opt]]]]] )

And is there a variable for the system folder?

Look at 'Macro Reference' in the helpfile.

Here is a pm im sure ShadowOps meant to put on here as a question so others could benefit from the answer.

I have my own custom make "Voice/Talk" function, and I was wondering how I could use Macros/Variables in the function text. For example:

talk("Hello @username")

All it says is "Hello AT username", and it doesn't replace it with my actual username...

So how do you use macros in custom functions? Thanks!

talk("Hello" & @username)

Frustration with people not reading the help file must be affecting you and I can see that happening in the case of this poster.

talk("Hello " & @username)

Prediction:

@ShadowOps continues to ignore the help file and suddenly finds that there is no help available on the forums.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
