Default Windows Form Loading


I have a windows form loading data that takes a long time. Is there anything I can do to allow the loading of the data in one form take place and be minimized, and allow me to work in another form in the same project?

You could load the data asychronously...

This isn't too difficult, it is explained in the vb.net documentation, or here http://www.informit.com/guides/conte...net&seqNum=185
