I have a few forms in my application which take a long time to load due to the forms retrieving data from the database. How can I show the user that the forms are indeed working and are not "frozen" as they appear? I would like to use a ProgressBar if possible.
From past reading, I saw that you may have to use different threads to accomplish this. I am a newbie to multi-threading, asynchronous processing so I would appreciate if there are any entry level examples that employ this technique.
