Splash screen sample

Shows how to imitate the splash screen that Windows displays for your app by positioning a similar image correctly when Windows dismisses the splash screen that it displays.

Note: This sample is part of a large collection of UWP feature samples. If you are unfamiliar with Git and GitHub, you can download the entire collection as a ZIP file, but be sure to unzip everything to access shared dependencies. For more info on working with the ZIP file, the samples collection, and GitHub, see Get the UWP samples from GitHub. For more samples, see the Samples portal on the Windows Dev Center.

This sample uses the SplashScreen class in the Windows.ApplicationModel.Activation namespace.

This sample demonstrates these tasks:

  • Responding when the splash screen dismissed event fires
  • Extending the splash screen

Important APIs in this sample include:

To obtain an insider copy of Windows 10, go to Windows 10.

Note For Windows 10 app samples, go to Windows 10 Samples. The samples for Windows 10 can be built and run using Windows developer tools.

Build the sample

  1. If you download the samples ZIP, be sure to unzip the entire archive, not just the folder with the sample you want to build.
  2. Start Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and select File > Open > Project/Solution.
  3. Starting in the folder where you unzipped the samples, go to the Samples subfolder, then the subfolder for this specific sample, then the subfolder for your preferred language (C++, C#, or JavaScript). Double-click the Visual Studio Solution (.sln) file.
  4. Press Ctrl+Shift+B, or select Build > Build Solution.

Run the sample

The next steps depend on whether you just want to deploy the sample or you want to both deploy and run it.

Deploying the sample

  • Select Build > Deploy Solution.

Deploying and running the sample

  • To debug the sample and then run it, press F5 or select Debug > Start Debugging. To run the sample without debugging, press Ctrl+F5 or select Debug > Start Without Debugging.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
