User Progress Box


S

swas

Hello,

I have several pieces of code that takes some time to run, particularly over
a network (20 - 30 Secs). Some are routines, others forms that require
preparation before opening.

Is there an easy way to show a dialogue box or form to let the user know
progress? It doesn't even need to be a 'progress bar', just something to say,
'Please wait' or similar, then automatically closed once done.

I can't do this during code, because nothing displays until the code
finishes. For forms, I could open an intermediate form which in turn opens
the main form, and the main form closes the intermediate, but I am hoping for
a simple solution that works in all cases, including running code.

Thoughts as to how best approached is appreciated.


Thanks in advance

I've created an importable subform which produces a progress bar and is very
simple to use. You can get it here:

Stuart,

This looks great, as do some of the other items.

I'll have a play.


Much appreciated.
