How to avoid Window not responding when doing lengthy calculations?

mr.abzadeh asked:

Open original thread
Hello, guys
If the message handling time exceeds 5 seconds, the Window goes to "Not responding" state and the messages in message queue is not processed. Is there a simple function call to handle messages so that the window does not freeze?
Thanks in advance

  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
