The big question is.....

I have a MDI parent form...using the mainmenu I load a child form (called childadd_form) that lets people enter information into the database....the form itself has many combobox that are populated from the database....

I want a splash form to popup before the childadd_form that connects to a database and loads the combobox's before the childadd_form form is visible...

Basically a UI for the loading of a forms data from a database but with a splash screen for the user to vview the progrss of the load...

Sounds complicated may not be possible but I'm open for ideas....


Worth lots of points.....please only serious inquires..
