Hello Peter;

to state it- its something like this... say you have to update some 1000 records and when the update is going on-behind process, you have to show a form saying "process going on, please wait" and then process is completed automatically the form2 needs to get closed, so user comes to know the process is done.

is that correct?

If yes, to make it simple...
- u click button1 (process starts)
- u load form2 (animation)
- then add one timer which will starts automatically after the load of the form2
- then in the time after certain interval stop the timer and call the Routine1 in timer event.
- This will load the form2 first and calls the main routine.

look into this example of vb6, link; which will show these steps in action.

Hope this helps.

With Regards,
Raghavendra Mudugal
