Status update

Implemented in OpenEdge 11.4.

  • there should be an option to show the Splashscreen but turn off the 2 second pause

  • Also support for other image formats, transparency, animation etc. would be welcome.

  • What about adding a startup parameter to turn it on or off like -splash true and -splash false. I don't recommend a -nosplash parameter because if that would be set at any level, you wouldn't be able to override it anymore.

  • Having the option to disable the splash screen in the runtime configuration screen would be nice.
