Hello Dear sir,

it,s easy to create.
Design your welcome message in new form,
then double click on ‘ My Project ‘ from Solution Explorer,
then find SPLASH SCREEN, and set your welcome form as a Splash screen,

when you start your project, load the form that is your welcome message view and issue the following code to wait for a few seconds:

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(5 * 1000)

    @casilcarmel, assuming you are in a learning process. If you are doing some programming related course, it is necessary to teach from your study materials. Welcome message like 'Hello Word', this is a very basic start to learn any programming language either it is java/ VB/ C# or other.

    When asking for help with code it's nice to post what you currently have so we can better understand things like the coding language and variable names being used. Also it help to know if it a real world issue or a homework assignment. We don't mind helping but won't do the assignment for you. Learning take trial and error.
