Property Value

Type Description

true, to revert to the Wait Indicator control that uses the theme resources; otherwise, false. The default value is false.


In v20.2 and earlier, SplashScreenManager and SplashScreenManagerService used the WaitIndicator control for the WaitIndicator predefined splash screen. The WaitIndicator control uses theme resources. This negatively impacts the splash screen’s startup performance.

In v21.1 and newer, the WaitIndicator predefined splash screen uses its own styles and templates, which provide the same look and feel as before. The new WaitIndicator is not compatible with WaitIndicator control customizations. Use the ThemeDesigner to customize the new WaitIndicator.
