                                Hello Tea,

                                Thank you for the question. We have attached a sample to the following thread: How to use the DXSpashScreen window while loading the main window. Please try it, this sample should help you. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

                                Thank you, Marina

                                  Thank you for the answer, but that project is from the question i mentioned..And ive already tried that. Splash works fine, but when i open a window with DX controls on it-it still freezes the UI for several seconds on first load. After it loads-works just fine. That sample doesnt show how to preload necessary resources during splash screen.

                                  I have modified your project. You should show/hide your TestForm during the MainWindow constructor. Please review the attachment. Does it meet your requirements?

                                  Thank you, Marina

                                  Hi Marina,

                                  is there any chance to do the loading of themes etc. in a seperate thread?

                                  My problem is, that my application "hangs" for 2 or 3 seconds while show/hide that testform.

                                  Thank you for your help!

                                • Hello,

                                  I am afraid that showing the test form in a separate thread will not help speed up the first loading, because the main form should be opened after the test form.

                                  In fact, each window in WPF already uses a separate UI thread, so in your case I can only suggest you create several test forms and open them simultaneously.
