I need to show a progress bar while loading another form.

The form to be loaded is taking time because it is loading data from one table of first database to the another table of another database.
So, to let the user know that the work is currently being done, i need a progress bar to show.

A little bit of help needed.
Thanks, in advance.

You should look into threading.

Where is the progressbar? If it is in main form (not "another form") - you can use a Timer control to control that progressbar.

You need to move your data loading code to a background thread so this frees up the UI thread to update the progress bar control. Look into using a BackgroundWorker[^] to simplify this.

An error occurred when i put the data loading code, and it says Timeout Expired. So, the problem is still a problem.
