I would like to make my progressbar move forward every second, when it reaches the bar width then goes back to the beginning and keeps doing that until the timer is stopped. its more of a working indication as I am starting and stopping in on a sql usp call that takes about 4 minutes. currently the bar does not show any progress

    Private Sub Panel1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Panel1.Click
        MessageBox.Show("Short Strings will be created, click to continue, this process. its 1 sql event which takes about 4 minutes, so wait for the next message as progress bar wont update with this procedure call. after clicking ok")
        Me.Timer1.Enabled = True
        Me.Timer1.Interval = 1 * 1000
        Timer1.Start()
        Call CreateAllStrs()
        Timer1.Stop()
        MessageBox.Show("Short Strings Created")
        Me.Timer1.Enabled = False
    End Sub


    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick


        If ProgressBar2.Value <= 10000 Then
            ProgressBar2.Value = ProgressBar2.Value + 1
            ProgressBar2.PerformStep()
        Else
            ProgressBar2.Value = 1

        End If
    End Sub
