I have FOR loop. Such as
TimeLabel1.Caption := timetostr(now);                           //start time
For x:=1 to 1000000 Do
   StringLabel2.Caption := MyString
   ............... search for  myString in dbase or array

TimeLabel and StringLabel captions remain blank untill the end of the loop.
Caption property is not fast enough to be reflected at caption, even though loop goes too slow.
It is shown at the last loop.
