Hi,
What is the first property activated when you select a row from a  combobox? I included a code to display label indicating code is processing in the selectindex property bu the label does not display when I select a row, until search code is completed.

I believe it's combobox.click()

Then it should be SelectedIndexChanged()

Hi,

Problem with Click is the label appears before I select a row.

Thanks

Right, I was confirming order of events during operation.  Are you sure it's not just happening so fast you're not seeing it?

Hi,
It is happening but after the code executes for example, code  in selectindexchanged

Label1.visible = True
Code
Label1.visible  = false

Code takes about 10 seconds to complete execution, meanwhile the label to indicate code is processing does not appear, until the code completes its execution.

Your code must force the label to be refreshed in the UI. For win forms, use the Refresh method as shown below:
Label1.visible = True
Label1.Refresh()
 Code
 Label1.visible  = false

Note: Your initial code does not work because label UI changes will not be applied until the event runs all your event code. Keep in mind that windows queue all your UI events for processing.

I do not think it is feasible to do it with your current implementation. Most label blinking implementations relied on timer events.
You could open another question in case other experts may have different advice.
