I have an app that I am checking another file on a server, I am doing a ton of things in between, and on the server end, but my app doesnt take into effect the server ends processing time (can take upto 2-5 seconds) so I put a Sleep function in....

The progress bar works fine, but the text does not it just shows the last message only.

Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
Updater.currentmessage = "Establishing Connection"
ProgressBar.Value = 10
Sleep (2000)
Updater.currentmessage = "Connection Established"
ProgressBar.Value = 20
Sleep (2000)
Updater.currentmessage = "Checking Versions"
ProgressBar.Value = 30

Try this (by placing the DoEvents statement before each sleep statement)

Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
Updater.currentmessage = "Establishing Connection"
ProgressBar.Value = 10
DoEvents
Sleep (2000)
Updater.currentmessage = "Connection Established"
ProgressBar.Value = 20
DoEvents
Sleep (2000)
Updater.currentmessage = "Checking Versions"
ProgressBar.Value = 30
DoEvents

Don't knock yourself - usually a second pair of eyes makes a world of difference.

I wasted 3 hours the other day debugging and getting frustrated, only to finally figure out I was connected to the wrong database;)
