Hanging on frm.show when the business object contains a collection w/ > 5000 objects

The following roughly describes the sequence of events:

- mdi menu click event asks the business tier to populate an object

- parent business object calls the database and populates itself.  This includes a collection of 5000 child objects.  While debugging I can see that this successfully completes

- control returns to the MDI form where it Dims a windows form

- the windows form is successfully given a reference to the business object

- frm.Show is called

Execution in the debugger runs as expected until frm.show is called.  At this point execution hangs, CPU usage redlines, the form never appears, and I eventually stop the debugging (or, if I am running without the debugger, I must kill the program).  I can successfully load the form when I have only 1000 child objects.  Why would 5000 cause this failure... out-of-memory comes to mind, but why would it not fail while the 5000 objects are being created?  Furthermore, 5000 hardly feels like a "scary" number!

Thank you in advance for pointing me into the right direction to uncover my error!

You pointed me into the right direction, and it was a silly mistake on my part.  I had assumed that execution was not making it into the form load event, so I didn't have a breakpoint set within the "being created" form.  Once I set the breakpoint and stepped into the form_load event, the bug in my looping logic was easy to spot.

A million thanks.
