I have a code that contain one line that take something like 8 seconds or even more.
I want to make some indication for the user that the process is still active.
1. I don't know how much time it will take, something between 0 milliseconds and 2 minutes.
2. I can't use background-worker because it's only one line so the progress will be between 0% to 100% and will show nothing in the time between.

Maybe 'hourglass' or some Progress bar but not with percent?
What should I do?

Solution 1

you can set the Style property of the progressbar to "Marquee" and it would just show a continuous progress ...

Thanks :-)
It was very useful...
I create a new class that inherit from Progressbar and contains BackgroundWorker for doing the event in a diffrent thread that can also increment the ProgressBar in the main application.
