    QSplashScreen or QProgressBar are two of the more obvious answers.

    Of course it is possible. You can run whichever code you want and call that a loading screen. ChrisW67 listed the Qt widgets commonly used for that purpose and that are immediately identified by the user as such. If you prefer to defy conventions and launch a minesweeper game with Beethoven's fifth symphony playing in the background, be my guest.

    I'm thinking that the finale to the 1812 Overture would be a better choice if he's going to launch minesweeper. Synchronization would be an interesting problem.

    There's always

    Qt Code:
    1. QApplication::setOverrideCursor( QCursor( Qt::WaitCursor ) );
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode
