I have a label control on a form with a grid1 control. when someone requests data to fill the grid control I set the label.visible=true, because it says "Please wait" but it dosn't work. The label control is initially set to false then when a person clicks on fillgrid the first command is to make it visible, but it stays invisible. If I F8 and step thru the program, when that command is reached it works perfectly, I have tried placing the label in different places on the form, but to no avail. I also have a check to inform the user that no data is available and if that event is triggered then before the msgbox pops up the label will become visible. This has me stumped, there is no reason why it shouldn't work. I have used this in other programs and it has worked fine the only difference is the grid control.
I am using VB4-16bit.
