I have this code:

Public Class Form1

    Private SW As New Stopwatch

    Private Sub Form1_Shown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Shown
        SW.Start()
        BackgroundWorker1.WorkerReportsProgress = True
        BackgroundWorker1.RunWorkerAsync()
    End Sub

    Private Sub BackgroundWorker1_DoWork(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.DoWorkEventArgs) Handles BackgroundWorker1.DoWork
        While True
            BackgroundWorker1.ReportProgress(-1, SW.Elapsed.Minutes.ToString("00") & ":" & SW.Elapsed.Seconds.ToString("00"))
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000)
        End While
    End Sub

    Private Sub BackgroundWorker1_ProgressChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.ComponentModel.ProgressChangedEventArgs) Handles BackgroundWorker1.ProgressChanged
        Label1.Text = e.UserState.ToString
    End Sub

End Class

The BackgroundWorker starts when my application executes a SQL query, But the clock remains frozen until the query ends ... want the timer to continue running while the query is executed, how can i do this?

 thank you very much
