Hi Team,

Iam trying to upload Employee timesheet excel which consists of 12000 - 15000 records in datagrid in Windows Forms using VB.net.

While Uploading I want to verify that Id column in excel is an Active employee Id with database, as data is huge, screen is getting white [ as in busy process ] as it does reading and binding.

1. How I can make screen while binding active, how to show as it is progressing without system getting hanged. ?

2. If I do first upload of excel it is taking 1 min time, then if I do verify for employee id then screen is getting white as in busy process ?

Please suggest.

I Assume you have a loop for reading your excel file so :

you have to call the event handler for form to make it active.
Application.DoEvents(); is the line you have to write before your loop.
and update your progress bar.

this.progressBar1.Visible = true;
this.progressBar1.Minimum = 1;
this.progressBar1.Maximum = worksheet.Cells.MaxDataRow;
this.progressBar1.Value = 1;
this.progressBar1.Step = 1;
 // Loop through all files to copy.
 for (int i = 1; i <= worksheet.Cells.MaxRow; i++)
     this.labelProgress.Text = worksheet.Cells[i, 0].Value.ToString() + " " + worksheet.Cells[i, 1].Value.ToString();
}//~For FileRows
