Welcome to the forum, denek14w. First, read the first link in my signature, then use the help file (it's more than enough to make you started), then try to make the program. If it's not working, post the code and we will gladly help you! :)

If you don't know anything, don't you think it's time to learn though? I've started using AutoIt by reading the help file and the examples. Even now, it's a precious resource!

hi denek14w,

Welcome to the forums! ;)

The Wiki and help-file(press F1 from SciTE) are great starting points :)

You may be interested in these functions, SplashImageOn(), Sleep(), SplashOff().

Search for them in the help-file and try hatching something together, if you get stuck, post back with your code.

Good luck, ;)

Pay attention to what the others have said about help resources and follow that advice.

After you create the script you will have to compile it. Then you need to create a shortcut to the compiled file and put that in the Start Menu>> Startup folder OR create an entry for the compiled file in the registry under the Run key.

Here is something to get you started. Note that I wait for the Task Bar to be loaded before the splash screen starts to display. That's to allow for the potential of your script starting too soon.

While NOT WinExists("[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]")

SplashImageOn("My Window", "C:\some\path\somefile.jpg") ;; See the help file for more parameters for the size/position and set the FULL path to your image in here.
$iStart = TimerInit()
While TimerDiff($iStart) <= 10000


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

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***
