Monitor progress in a progress bar

Monitor progress in a progress bar


VS 2005
CF 2.0

I have created an application that scynchronizes the central database by sending changes to a web service.

This normally takes 5 to 10 seconds and the customer wants to have some kind of progress bar to show that something is happening.

This is some code that would explain what needs to be monitored. (Only showing the main parts - otherwise to much code to show)


'Synchronise Data with the central database
Private Sub MenuItem9_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem9.Click


If (dsIncidents.HasChanges()) Then

dsChanges = dsIncidents.GetChanges()

'Send only the changes and return a fresh update from the central database

Dim updatedIncident As DataSet = ws.SynchroniseIncidentChanges(dsChanges)

'Assign to the global dataset

Dim objGlobals As New Globals()

objGlobals.IncidentData = updatedIncident


'There was not changes made to the PDA incidents, so just download the latest incidents


End If

End Try

End Sub
So when the code above is running it should display a progress bar to show how long it will take. Or it could show just a animation so the customer knows there is something going on in the background.

Many thanks for any advice and code samples,
