Refresh form and controls

I click a button, and the program does something, at meantime this button and/or other buttons disappear or deform. I use form.invalidate or form.refresh, but these do not work. How can I fix this problem?

try application.processmessages after the code on the buttonclick..or if your program is doing something in a loop on the click then call .processmessages in the loop.

Some buttons are the toolbar buttons, these buttons disapear when I click the other button. I already tried the application.processmessages, but it was still not working.
