'Offline' painting to initialise Form at application start ?
Driven by some short delays on the initial display of a form with multiple components (tabs, combos, textfields etc.) I am wondering if there is a way to initialise the form completely during startup, e.g. by drawing it 'offline' (invisibly) while showing a splash screen ?
This way the existing processes occurring in the first call to show() would not have to be changed but would occur unnoticed as part of the initial application start. The first 'real' call to 'show()' after this would perform as well as all the following ones ;-)
