In my windows form based application I have a for each loop.  I want the application to do it stuff in the for next loop until it is done OR the user clicks on the cancel button.  How would i make it recognise that the cancel button has been clicked while the for loop buttons is executing in another procedure??

You toggle a form level boolean in the cancel button handler.

In the loop, check the flag.  You must add DoEvents() inside the loop to allow the cancel button click to be processed.

*A more robust approach would be to place the work into a background thread with the BackgroundWorker() control.

It tells me that DoEvents is not declared

Sorry...for VB.Net you'd use "Application.DoEvents()".
