kill-splash-screen

Arguments: project

Looks for the "splash screen" window that might have been shown as the running standalone application was starting up, and closes it if found. Returns true if a splash window was found and closed, and nil otherwise. It may be useful to call this function when an app has finished starting up, rather than making the end user wait for the splash screen to go away after an arbitrary amount of time.

(See the descriptions of the +b, +Bt, and +Bp arguments in Command line arguments in startup.htm. Those arguments control the initial display of a splash screen. +b and +Bt display the splash screen for three seconds, while +Bp displays it until the user clicks on it. kill-splash-screen allows you to kill the splash screen sooner if desired.)

In a standalone Common Graphics application that was generated from a project, this function is called automatically if the project's kill-splash-screen-when-ready option is true, as it is by default.
