How to implement Android Splesh Screen

Android splash screen are normally used to show user some kind of progress before the app loads completely. Some people uses splash screen just to show case their app / company logo for a couple of second. In this tutorial we are going to learn how to implement splash screen in your android application.

Android Splash Screen Using Timer

1) Create a new project in Eclipse by navigating to File ⇒ New Android ⇒ Application Project and fill required details. (I kept my main activity name as MainActivity.java)

2) For Splash Screen we are creating a separate activity. Create a new class in your package and name it as SplashScreen.java

3) Open your your AndroidManifest.xml file and make your splash screen activity as Launcher activity.

AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<manifest xmlns:android=”http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android”
package=”info.w2class.androidsplashscreentimer”
android:versionCode=”1″
android:versionName=”1.0″ >

<uses-sdk
android:minSdkVersion=”8″
android:targetSdkVersion=”17″ />

<application
android:allowBackup=”true”
android:icon=”@drawable/ic_launcher”
android:label=”@string/app_name”
android:theme=”@style/AppTheme” >
<!– Splash screen –>
<activity
android:name=”info.w2class.androidsplashscreentimer.SplashScreen”
android:label=”@string/app_name”
android:screenOrientation=”portrait”
android:theme=”@android:style/Theme.Black.NoTitleBar” >
<intent-filter>
<action android:name=”android.intent.action.MAIN” />

<category android:name=”android.intent.category.LAUNCHER” />
</intent-filter>
</activity>

<!– Main activity –>
<activity
android:name=”info.w2class.androidsplashscreentimer.MainActivity”
android:label=”@string/app_name” >
</activity>
</application>

</manifest>

4) Create a layout file for splash screen under res ⇒ layout folder. I named the layout file asactivity_splash.xml. This layout normally contains your app logo or company logo.

activity_splash.xml

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android=”http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android”
android:layout_width=”match_parent”
android:layout_height=”match_parent”
android:background=”@drawable/gradient_background” >

<ImageView
android:id=”@+id/imgLogo”
android:layout_width=”wrap_content”
android:layout_height=”wrap_content”
android:layout_centerInParent=”true”
android:src=”@drawable/wwe_logo” />

<TextView
android:layout_width=”fill_parent”
android:layout_height=”wrap_content”
android:layout_marginBottom=”10dp”
android:textSize=”12dp”
android:textColor=”#454545″
android:gravity=”center_horizontal”
android:layout_alignParentBottom=”true”
android:text=”www.w2class.info” />

</RelativeLayout>

5) Add the following code in SplashScreen.java activity. In this following code a handler is used to wait for specific time and once the timer is out we launched main activity.

SplashScreen.java

package info.w2class.androidsplashscreentimer;

import android.app.Activity;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Handler;

public class SplashScreen extends Activity {

// Splash screen timer
private static int SPLASH_TIME_OUT = 3000;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_splash);

new Handler().postDelayed(new Runnable() {

/*
* Showing splash screen with a timer. This will be useful when you
* want to show case your app logo / company
*/

@Override
public void run() {
// This method will be executed once the timer is over
// Start your app main activity
Intent i = new Intent(SplashScreen.this, MainActivity.class);
startActivity(i);

// close this activity
finish();
}
}, SPLASH_TIME_OUT);
}

}
