Your (very short) description sounds like you have a program that should start a lengthly calculation, but you still want to use the user interface.

You should create a multi-threaded application with one worker thread (that does the calculation), and a UI thread, that is responsible for handling the user interface.

This article shows how you can do this: http://www.codeguru.com/misc/lenop.html

Here is part of the script so you caan see how it is layed out.
This was originaly a C++ application that im converting to VC++.
My main problem is the pseudo_main function must be in the class so i can display info in the program (as far as i know).
Granted im a C++ programer, not so much VC++

There are two ways to make program responsive. Simple way is using DoEvents:

void DoEvents()
{
    MSG msg;
   
    while ( ::PeekMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0, PM_NOREMOVE ) )
    {  
        if ( ::GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
        {
            ::TranslateMessage(&msg);
            ::DispatchMessage(&msg);
        }
        else
        {
            break;
        }
    }
}

Now when you have some long loop call DoEvents from it periodically:

while ( ... )
{
    // some operations
   
    DoEvents();          // here window is redrawn, menu items are handled etc.
}

Another way us using multi-threading. Check out MFC sample MTRECALC.

You can call the DoEvents() function e.g. at the start of your two for lools in the pseudo_main function.
