I have a form that when a button is clicked it triggers another form to popup and reads "Waiting" with an animated spinning arrows gif
The problem is that when the waiting form is displayed the gif is moving then stops and then moves random. I think the process, LocalDataCache1SyncAgent() which sync's local sql db to server sql 2005 on the parent form seems to be the problem, but am not sure. I have tried progress bar and it does the same thing, just does not seem to have movement after the process starts on the parent. I have even tried starting the process off on the parent form with ..Application.DoEvents() and still does not work..
Any ideas to get a continus smooth running gif while the parent process runs would be greatly appreciated.
