Creating and displaying an initial 'splash' Excel/VBA Userform by taupirho
Posted: 29 Jun 04 (Edited 19 May 05)


When developing VBA userform apps its sometimes useful to be able to display a small splash screen whilst your app is initialising itself and preparing to display its main userform. This can be a wee bit tricky but here's how you go about doing it. Lets assume your main form is called userform1 and your mini splash screen is userform2.

On your workbook open event put in the following code:

UserForm2.Show
UserForm1.Show

Now your userform2 (splash screen) should have an activate trigger. In this code you should do all your initialisation and at the end do an UNLOAD userform2. Userform1 (your main screen) will then kick in as normal.
