VB6 Not Responding
Posted on 2007-11-20
I have an application that is sometimes required to process large sets of data. While processing the status bar indicates the application's progress.
With larger datasets, the application becomes quite busy and appears to end-users as though it has stopped responding (them: did it crash? me: no).
With the current design, I *do not* want to use DoEvents:
- I do not want other events to be triggered
- I just want to avoid the title bar turning white (a signal of a 'Not Responding' application).
An example of the situation would be looping through a large set of data (from a map recordset) and populating a grid, or combobox with the data while displaying the progress in a status bar.
Thoughts (other than abandoning VB6)?
