When my form loads, i need fill a dataset with some data from a oracle database. The server needs about 30 secs to return the results that i will use to fill my dataset.
But, i don't whan't to wait for the filling process end to be able to work with my form, so, i'm thinking using a thread to the fill process, and call this thread from my form_load event.
I created a class that will be used to fill the dataset. This class has the method called filldts.
When the form_load event is called, the thread is called and started, but, my form doesn't appear until the thread ends.
Does anyvody can show me a example of how implement this?
