They are used to determine the order of subcomponents when using form/frame inheritance.

.NET/C# – WinForms splash screen research material

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/21

I’m in the midst of converting a suite of WinForms C# projects from a range of .NET versions (1.x till 3.x) to 4 totalling some million lines of code.

One of the problems is that some people hacked together some splash screen stuff using multi-threading, doing all sorts of things that was forbidden in .NET 1 (and broke in .NET 2+).

On my research list for getting this to work:

  1. Mahin Gupta | Winforms splash screen – Great work by Tom. which is an update of
  2. A Pretty Good Splash Screen in C# – CodeProject.
