Is it possible to add a sound to splash screen. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm wondering if its possible to add a sound that plays in the splash screen on a metro app. I can't see anything in the package.appmanifest file that suggests id be able to.

    Just think it would be a nice touch to my app.

    Thanks in advance

  • I think you can't do that.

    You can try to put media element in custom root frame and try play sound before first navigation, but I think it's does not work.

  • No. The splash screen runs while your app's code is loading and stops when the app's code starts running. You could play sound in an extended splash screen. See Splash screen sample (Windows 8)             for an example extended splash screen (without sound).
