In your if statement for results == 1 add

               if (Results == 1)
               {
                   MessageBox.Show("Found file");
                   break;
               }

               Results = CheckFileCreate();

MessageBox.Show("Now it is starting the While Loop");
int Results = 0;
           while ( Results == 0)
           {
               Results = CheckFileCreate();       
            // when Results changes to 1, loop is terminated.

i try using this(MessageBox.Show("Wait...."); but its waiting for user click on OK button,
I don't want to allow to user to click any button,
JUST want to show to client , wait until this process finish.

Add a label control named lblMessage where you want your message to be displayed. and revise the code as shown below:
int Results = 0;
           while ( Results == 0)
           {
               Results = CheckFileCreate();       
            // when Results changes to 1, loop is terminated.  
           lblMessage.Text = "Wait..."; 
           }
// optionally include this message box:
MessageBox.Show("Process is completed.");
lblMessage.Text = "";

But its not working if you use message box user needs to click on, I need to without users involved show message
please wait.
if I use lblMessage.Text = "Wait...";
in the form load event its not display,becuase its load event, it will display after the form load

So any better idea

This is my last input, I hope it works for you.

lblMessage.Text = "Wait...";
int Results = 0;
           while ( Results == 0)
           {
               Results = CheckFileCreate();      
            // when Results changes to 1, loop is terminated.  
           }
// optionally include this message box:
MessageBox.Show("Process is completed.");
lblMessage.Text = "";

It sounds like your looking for more of a splash screen.  

create a new form
set the FormBorderStyle property to None
Add a label to the form that says "Please Wait" or what ever you want it to say
Set the StartPosition to CenterScreen
Set ShowInTaskbar to False

Back in your main form
Add a using statement for threading
using System.Threading;

Open in new window


under the main method add the following code

        public void SplashScreen()
        {
            Application.Run(new Form2()); //where Form2 is the name of your splash screen form
        }

Open in new window


In the main method you'll want to create a new thread and start it to bring up your splash screen

        public Form1()
        {
            Thread t = new Thread(new ThreadStart(SplashScreen));
            t.Start();
            Thread.Sleep(5000); //set this to however long you want the splash screen up
            InitializeComponent();
            t.Abort();
        }

Open in new window


Then when your main form loads, you could put something in a label to state if the file was found our not, or a message box if you don't mind having the user click a button.
