Splash Screens that Impress

The DevExpress Splash Screen - or startup screen – appears in a separate thread when your WinForms application loads. You can choose between multiple splash screen design options to keep end-users engaged during app load operations:

  • Themed Splash Screen – one that auto-adjusts its appearance based on the current applied application skin or theme.

  • Fluent Splash Screen - a Windows 10-inspired splash screen that features the Acrylic material effect with a partially transparent texture.

  • Image-based Splash Screen – a straightforward splash screen with an embedded image.

Splash Screen features include:

  • Automatic Display on Startup
  • Fade Animation
  • SVG Support
  • Opacity / Shadow
  • Dynamic Content Update Options
  • Design-time Customization Flexibility

Testing Support

The DevExpress Universal Subscription includes built-in support for Microsoft's CodedUI. Unlike many vendors claiming support for Coded UI through the simple use of MSAA, DevExpress controls go the extra mile to make certain that individual controls fully comply with Microsoft's testing framework. We don't simply support Coded UI; we support it to the maximum extent possible. Note: CodedUI support requires purchase of the DevExpress Universal Subscription. Learn more about Coded UI

MVVM Framework

The DevExpress MVVM Framework ships with features that are absent in WinForms, but essential to MVVM development. These missing features include bindings, commands, UI triggers, behaviors etc. Our Framework includes all of these along with a straightforward API to make WinForms app development more efficient.
