splash screen?

Is it possible to display a splash screen before MSHTML loads?

It takes about 10 seconds to load my app, based around this webbrowser control, and it would be nice to display a loading message.

I have no idea how it can be done though. Any ideas?

Yes. There have been some examples of pure .Net splash screens posted to the newsgroups. However, I use a native win32 app (built with Delphi) as the splash. This launches the .Net app. When the app opens it sends a message to the splash app that closes it.

The multithreaded version is the best choice.
Hope this helps,

what I do is do the splash screen approach shown above on code project and do a preload of the mshtml by just doing this:

HTMLEditor h = new HTMLEditor();
h.Dispose();

and then everything that needs to be loaded is loaded without forms or anything.
