It takes away the hassles of having to create a splash screen for your program. Create a picture, and assign to this component. 2 lines of coding are all you need - BlendIn() and BlendOut().

Updates / Features:

  • Like the splash screen of 3DMark2000, it alphablends with desktop (fades in and out).
  • Utilizes the MMX instructions where possible.
  • Uses an extremely fast algorithm to blend if MMX hardware is not present (for CPUs optimized for 32-bit, ie. Pentium PRO, non-MMX is almost as fast as MMX at the same clock speed).
  • Runs on Windows 98 / 98SE / ME / NT4 sp4 / NT4 sp5 / 2000 / XP / 2003.
  • Ease of use - 2 lines of coding.
  • Uses TGraphics component to store picture - assign picture like you’ve always been doing for TImage.
  • All known bugs from previous version has been fixed.
  • Includes a demo that shows how easy it is to use this component.
