NAME ^

Wx::Perl::SplashFast - Fast splash screen for the Wx module.

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Wx::Perl::SplashFast ('/path/to/logo.jpg',3000);
  # timeout in milliseconds

  package myApp ;
  # subclass Wx::App ...

  package myFrame;
  # subclass Wx::Frame ...

  package main;

  my $myApp = myApp->new();
  my $frame = myFrame->new();

  $myApp->MainLoop();

DESCRIPTION ^

Using Wx::SplashScreen from Wx::App::OnInit may cause a high delay before the splash screen is shown on low end machines.

This module works around this limitation; you just need to follow the example.

USAGE ^

Just put the code inside the 'BEGIN {}' of your main app, like:

  sub BEGIN {
    use Wx::Perl::SplashFast ;
    Wx::Perl::SplashFast->new("./logo.jpg",5000);
  }

or load the module before any other:

  use Wx::Perl::SplashFast ("./logo.jpg",5000) ;
  use Wx ;
  ...

import ( IMG_FILE, SPLASH_TIMEOUT )

IMG_FILE

Path of the image file to show.

SPLASH_TIMEOUT

Timeout of the splash screen in milliseconds.

If you use Wx::Perl::SplashFast './logo.jpg', 1000; this has the same affetc as.

  BEGIN {
    require Wx::Perl::SplashFast;
    Wx::Perl::SplashFast->new( './logo.jpg', 1000 );
  }

new ( IMG_FILE , SPLASH_TIMEOUT )

Show the splash screen.

IMG_FILE

Path of the image file to show.

SPLASH_TIMEOUT

Timeout of the splash screen in milliseconds.

EXAMPLE ^

  use Wx::Perl::SplashFast ("./logo.jpg",5000) ;
  # Don't forget to put your own image in the same path. Duh

  package myApp ;
  use base 'Wx::App';
  sub OnInit { return(@_[0]) ;}

  package myFrame ;
  use base 'Wx::Frame';
  use Wx qw( wxDEFAULT_FRAME_STYLE );

  sub new {
    my $app = shift ;
    my( $frame ) = $app->SUPER::new( @_[0] , -1, 'wxPerl Test' ,
                                     [0,0] , [400,300] ) ;
    return( $frame ) ;
  }

  package main ;
  use Wx ;

  my $myApp = myApp->new() ;

  print "window\n" ;
  my $win = myFrame->new() ;
  $win->Show(1) ;

  $myApp->SetTopWindow( $win ) ;
  $myApp->MainLoop();
