On my vb.net windows form I have a progress bar which increments based on a for each loop. Since this works very well, I was hoping to extend the idea to display a realtime numeric representation of what the progress bar is doing. Basically a numeric counter, we've all seen these kind of counters when extracting files, installing programs etc. Well its one of those I am looking for.
I have tried doing this by trying to update the text property of a label after every loop but for some reason this does not work until the last loop. I think this is to do with threading, but please advise.
I would be very grateful for any help on this problem.
