form lock or buttos disable?
Posted on 2006-05-19
I am developing visual c#.net application for win mobil 2003 se.
In my application I have a connect button which connect to the server through GPRS to get reent records and updates. The whole process runs good and i have a timer which do the same process automatically every 2 minuts.
The problem is when i connect to the server manually or in every 2 minuts when the system do the connetion the interface is blocking all the time and when someone clicks another the button( you know about the users if thery do not get any immediate feedback they click click click ) and the system blocks forever.
I need a method to frees the whole screen to disable all the button process.
after the server connection process ( 3 or 4 seconds ) the system should come active for the user.
Now i have a solution to put another form in fornt of the main form to say the system is bussy. It comes automatically and disapiers after the connection process. But every 2 minutes it comes and the user is not happy with it.
Do anybody have any idea to solve this porblem.
Thanks in advance.
Hope to hear.
