Progress bar or any activity while calling the component

Progress bar or any activity while calling the component


  I have a problem. While calling MTS component and waiting for the response, I display a status bar message and vbhourglass mouse pointer. I would like display a progress bar or any nice graphical stuff. My problem is once I call MTS object,the control moved. So I cann't increase progress bar value or anything else.
  Program has to wait there. I can simply display a status bar saying "Please Wait .." with a hourglass.
  Anybody has got good suggestion to display a nice graphics or progress bar while calling a MTS component?

  Thank you !


RE: Progress bar or any activity while calling the component

Most people just throw the user an animated .gif to watch for awhile.  About the same as an hourglass if you ask me though.
