Silverlight MVP John Stockton of Ascentium appears on the show to explain how to create a custom pre-loader (sometimes called a splash screen) for Silverlight applications. He demonstrates how to create a custom preloading animation and progress indicator while a Silverlight application loads. He also discusses what you can and cannot do when creating a pre-loader since the pre-loader runs using script and XAML prior to the Silverlight application being fully loaded. Lots of code in this episode!
