Custom splashscreen

Hi, Is there any way to have a ROOT script produce a splash screen, in the same way that root produces a splash screen when it is launched?

Thanks,
Adam

My first idea would be to display a TCanvas.

‘Custom’ is the right word for our splash-screen, since on OS X and X11 these are two separate (quite similar though) applications doing some tricks and magic.

You can probably create a window with special properties - have a look at how, for example, tooltips or context menus are implemented in ROOT - you have to set the correct window attribute to get rid of a titlebar and other things.

thanks for the replies, i will take a look
