It's possible to show a very simple SplashScreen when your GUI starts up.
It will fill the whole screen, and stay up for a couple of seconds, while your GUI loads.
.showSplash(text, fill='red', stripe='black', fg='white', font=44)
Pass in the text you want to show, plus any colours (not required).
textThis should be a short message to show in the center of the screen.
fill- this is the bg colour for the splashscreen.
stripe- this is the bg colour of a stripe across the screen.
fg- this is the colour of the writing to put in the stripe.
font- the size of the text.
This is only a very simple splashScreen, eventually, it will be possible to arrange labels and images in it, just as is possible in the main GUI layout...
