    Re: DoEvent

    I think I understand what you're looking for. You don't want the user to be able to click any buttons while your program is in the middle of doing work.

    There is no quick option that I'm aware of.

    But it's not very difficult to handle it in code.

    Before you start your loop, set a variable like WorkInProgress=True

    Then in your click event just do

    If WorkInProgress Then Exit Sub

    You can set the enabled property of the buttons to False while your code is running.

    WorkInProgress not working

    the only way that it will work is if i put DoEvents in the loop

    Re: DoEvent

    You don't need it to fire every iteration on the loop, unless each iteration takes very long. You could have it fire every 10 to 1000 iterations.
    VB Code:
    1. for x=1 to 10000
    2.   if x mod 1000 = 0 then doevents
    3. endif

    Re: DoEvent

    I don't understand what you are trying to do. You are running a loop, and you don't want users to click on a button? If you set command1.enabled=false, they won't be able to press the button. If you use DoEvents, it WILL allow them to press the button while your loop is executing.

    Please explain exactly what you want to happen.

    use lockwindow update to lock your window so it cant be touched.

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Command1_Click()
    2.     MsgBox "This app will now run in the background"
    3.     Form1.Visible = False
    4.     Do Until x > 1000
    5.    
    6.     Loop
    7.     Form1.Visible = True
    8. End Sub

    The Form1.Enabled should do better. This way the user will be able to see the form but can't do anything on it.

    Good answer. Yes, set form1.enabled = false and then form1.enabled = true when you are done with your loop.
