I have read article after article.
All I want to do is show the user that a search is in progress.
Image = animated gif.
I have tried to create another form that pops up. image locks up during the fill
I have tried to create a progress bar. Progress bar freezes during fill.
I have tried showing an image on the main form. Image locks up
I have tried threading. I threaded the fill-- that created multiple scroll bars
I have tried threading the image. Image still locks up
I have read and tried asynch-- image locks up
I have tried hiding the datagrid and showing the image, after the fill i reverse them. image locks up.
I have tried several different image files, including a 4k jpg that says SEARCHING, image didnt show.
I am runn vs.2003
1 gig ram
? any ideas?
The search that it is performing is running through 300,000 records.
