I am populating a Treeview in a program and it takes a long time.  I want to play a .GIF animation while it is loading.  I have the GIF loaded into a WebBrowser.  I can only get the first frame of the animation to play while the loop is running to fill the Treeview.  The animation will play after the Treeview is filled.  How do I run the loop AND have the animation play at the same time?

I am using VB 6.0 sp5.  Let me know if you need any other info!

Thanks!!

Did you place DoEvents in the procedure where you are filling the Treeview?

Example

For i = 1 to 1000
    Tree.nodes.add ....
    DoEvents
Next

Doevents will let other processes get processor time!

Thanks, I should have known that!  It worked, but it made my tree load 2.5 times slower.  Oh well.
