Any idea as to how this could be done...?

You will want to start with this article.

You can use fillRoundRect or fillRect to draw your progress bar.

I use an image and progressbar for most of my splash screens.

Yeah, but i thought i could make an eye candy splash as we see in other platforms :-)

Canvas seems to be an option...
Thank Rashid...
