In general, you disable the button, do your thing, pump the queue with Application.DoEvents(), then re-enable the button.

Add a ProgressBar to your form and toggle its visibility.

Can you explain what you need to show the progress of?...

Not sure...I think he also might want the "busy" cursor icon to show instead of an actual progressbar?

So hard to interpret questions sometimes...  =)

Maybe something like:
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Button1.Enabled = False
        Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor()

        ' ... do something in here ...

        Application.DoEvents() ' <-- this is what keeps the "queued" button clicks from being processed
        ' (As long as we call DoEvents() BEFORE the button is turned back on) 
        Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
        Button1.Enabled = True
    End Sub

Open in new window

The best way to do so without disabling the button:
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Me.UseWaitCursor Then
            Exit Sub
        End If
        Me.UseWaitCursor = True

        ' TODO: Add you code here...

        Me.UseWaitCursor = False
    End Sub

Open in new window

You may also use various "spinners" they look cool and catch the attention of the user. The .NET picture box supports animated GIF so you can create your own "spinner" and place it next to the command button while the code in the button does work. The button should be disabled though when you activate the "spinner". I would stick with a green, orange or light blue color only and never red unless you want to indicate an error to the user. You may have to use threading if you can't pump the message queue with just the code in the button. This is only recommend for special situations so don't go putting spinners all over the place!
I use either green or this blue #0099CC

This site can build them in a variety of different shapes, sizes and colors!
