Here is my situation.
I have a form that kicks off
an intensive subroutine that loops through some data and does a bunch of inserts into a DB. During this process, I want to pop open another
form that allows the user to click a cmdbutton to cancel the operation. I can do the rollback and all that. My problem is in actually being able to get the cancel form to respond to the users click. Since the app is responding to the subroutine and doing all of its inserts it seems to hold the form that the routine is in hostage. I cant do anything else.
I have always had form problems of this type in VB (i.e. when doing something intensive you usually can't move the current form around, minimize it, etc)
and have never really been able to solve them.
Thanks a bunch.
