Copying "big" files with VB 4.0 16 bits

Copying "big" files with VB 4.0 16 bits

Copying "big" files with VB 4.0 16 bits

I made an application that copy files (bigger than 80 MB)from a local to a network disk throught a dial up connection (33.600 bps). But when the "copy" begin, I lose the control to perform another process (for example: Display a blinking alert like "...copying files...1%,2%," and so on.)
Do you know any way to do this?

Thank you!!!!

RE: Copying "big" files with VB 4.0 16 bits

I think what U want is to use the DoEvents command. This will allow other processes to have a chance at updating the screen etc.

Be carefull where U put it in though as it will seriously slow down your program as it gives up time slices to any other process that wants to grab them!

I you just want to yeild on key or mouse events you can use :

Declare Function GetInputState Lib "user32" () as Long

and in your loop put :

if GetInputState() then Doevents
