    Unhappy Splash Screen with NetBeans

    Hi,

    I wanted to add a simple .gif as Splash Screen to my application. I'm using NetBeans and I've seen there are lots of bugs when doing this with it.

    I've tried to add the line SplashScreen-Image: to the manifest.mf file and -splash: at the run properties of my project (as I've read this last thing is only when running it from the IDE). But it only works on the IDE, my .jar does not show any splash screen. In fact, I opened the manifest.mf file compiled in the resulting .jar and it does not show the SplashScree-Image line.

    I also tried to add it with the Netbeans option for it, but it does not work.

    What can I do? Maybe another way to compile the project? I think I have tried everything and nothing worked for me...

    Thank you so much and I hope this is the right section in the forum to post this.

    Post a SSCCE to show how you are handling the splash screen so we can see what is happening.

    Default Re: Splash Screen with NetBeans

    To show the SplashScreen I added the SplashScreen-Image line to my manifest.mf:

    Manifest-Version: 1.0
    SplashScreen-Image: resource/img/splash.gif
    X-COMMENT: Main-Class will be added automatically by build

    The MANIFEST.MF compiled into the META-INF folder of the resulting .jar is like this:

    Manifest-Version: 1.0
    implementation-vendor: guilledi
    JavaFX-Version: 2.2
    implementation-title: Project
    implementation-version: 1.0
    JavaFX-Application-Class: project.Main
    JavaFX-Class-Path: JavaFXApplication4.jar
    Created-By: JavaFX Packager
    Main-Class: com/javafx/main/Main
     
    Name: resource/img/splash.gif
    SHA-256-Digest: OB8dBDuP/hwaxN/Z7AIVNXkL9oQOS9upIPiDgI8Er48=

    (There were more resources but they are not relevant)

    As you see the final MANIFEST.MF does not include the SplashScreen line. I think it's a compiler problem, maybe there is a way to edit the file in the .jar but I don't know how to do it.

    Thumbs up Re: Splash Screen with NetBeans

    After several weeks trying to get it, I downloaded NetBeans 7.4. There you can add Custom Manifest Attributes in the Project Preferences, so I finally could make it and it's solved. Thank you
