I have MFC dialog that has Next and Back buttons on it. It also has 4 child dialogs out of which one has a progress control on it.
When this particular dialog appears, I would like to start a progress bar and keep changing the static control above it with messages like "Initializing...", "installation started", "Finished" etc.
As I go on changing the text on the static control, parent dialog kind of hangs. Next & Back buttons partially appear (they don't get repainted properly). Once the progress function is finished, everything comes to normal state.
Can anybody tell me how should I show progress on a static control keeping my parent form movable, re-sizable etc.
