Play avi file during DB query
Posted on 2007-12-01
I have an c# .Net 1.1 Winforms application which has a long running query to my Sybase DB. This is not a problem, but I want to inform my user that the query is active and the application is not hanging. I have placed a lael on the form to inform users but I'd also like to add an avi file / video clip which illustrates this.
My question has 2 parts. Firstly where can I get a free, clean and professional avi file which conveys that a DB query is running. Secondly how do I display / run this avi file on my form and stop it once the query has returned a result.
Thanks for your help.
