Hello

I asked this question before, since nobody respond to it,
I decide to ask it again to see if i can get a better results.

What i want to do is something simple, i am working in a VB6 project,
My goal is to execute a command code to a program, but before that
i want my project to wait for that program to be load, then apply code.

Ive been using the Sleep method, and actually is been working very well,
but i was wondering if i could do it better with DoEvent or something better.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Shell "Program-to-be-execute.exe"

Sleep 3 'wait like three seconds or so

Then after the program load up, is time to apply my code here.
I even add a second code to detect if the windows program is ready or not
'f return not ready, then another three seconds are applyed to my project.

End Sub

Thanks in advance
