Localization for splashscreen RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hey. I wonder if its possible to use localization for the splashscreen.
    So when i change between the languages the splashscreen changes.

  • Spashscreen is just an image (jpg).

    i haven't come across any means of localising it like you put it.

    However nothing is stopping you from displaying your own XAML page which acts as a splash screen and one that you can localise

  • Smart. I have some animations that starts after the splashscreen. Should i use a dispatcher to delay the animation start or something because if i have a xaml everything will be loaded at the same time, i am right.

  • well you know that you dont really need the splashscreen jpg file, you can just delete it.

    What you could do is Start Animation and using dispatch timer, after the tick toggle hide the animation and display whatever else you want to display.

    i display wait message (localised) and load stuff on background thread. The thread when it finishes, hides the wait message.
