Visio 2013 - VBA - Open File procedure

I would like to run the procedure below (with a few additional lines of enhancements).  
- Is there any way I can generate a message to appear saying "Please wait" as soon as the file is opened so that the user doesn't start typing away as soon as they see a glimmer of their diagram.  
- Is there any way I can block keyboard entry until after the procedure below is run?  Perhaps blank out the screen with the "Please wait" message?

Private Sub Document_DocumentOpened(ByVal doc As IVDocument)

    Set Win1 = ActiveWindow

    ActiveWindow.Page = doc.Pages(1)        ' move to page 1
    
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = -1                  ' set zoom to whole page
    
   '  more code to be input here
   '  more code to be input here

    MsgBox "You are ready to work." 


End Sub

pls try

    ActiveWindow.Zoom = -1                  ' set zoom to whole page
