I am having a little issue and wonder if anyone can help with a workaround etc..
basically i have some code that tries and sends an email so i display a small form over the top (no title bar, min, max buttons etc) and it says "Trying to send, please wait..." ...
If i showDialog then all my code execution stops...., i wondering if there was an event that is fired once on the Dialog form to say its SHOWN and then i could do my email code here and then close the form but there isn't ... Event load isn't good enough because it fires before the form is shown
Event activated seems to fire all the time when it looses focus so this is no good either...
If i use a non-modal show then all my other forms are still accepting input, of course i can say Stay On Top.... but it just doesn't behave like a modal form.
Does anyone know of a good trick or work around to acheive what i am trying to do.
I am a little stuck
Thanks in advance
