Trying to write an application using visual basic and I'm having a problem getting the following to work.

How do you run a block of code and update an item on the form (for example, encounter) without using Application.doevents()?

Hi rgturner;

You can use a BackgroundWorker object to execute the block of code. Please see the BackgroundWorker class, at the bottom of the page is examples of how to use it. Any questions please post here.
