Global $splash = GUICtrlCreateButton("SPLASH IT!", 484, 197, 89, 20)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While (1)

cookiemonster,

It never updates because you never ask tell it to update. ;)

Declare $iMessage as Global and then add a GUICtrlSetData($iMessage, $sText) each time you change $sText. :)

Now that makes sense, decided to go with GUICtrlSetData($iMessage, "text goes here") each time rather than having two lines, declaring the variable then setting it.

And am I doing the right thing using   GUISetState(@SW_HIDE) to close off the splash screen at the end? I know it works but is this the correct way?
