Loading Form with DataGridView RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a form that opens other forms, some of them as to get data from the Database, and when it does, it takes a while, what I want to do is to show a progress bar while it gets that data, instead of the program just being frozen

  • Hello,

    Can you please show how the data is being loaded and use the code block button when doing this.

  • Hi,

    I made a demo, listview reads values from the database

    Imports System.Data.SqlClient
    Public Class Form1
        Dim constr As String = "Data Source = (localdb)\MSSQLLocalDB; Integrated Security = True ;AttachDbFileName= C:\Users\alexl2\Desktop\DataBase\Alex\alex.mdf"
        Dim conn As SqlConnection
        Dim cmd1 As SqlCommand
        Dim cmd2 As SqlCommand
        Dim dt As New DataTable
        Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            Using conn = New SqlConnection(constr)
                cmd1 = New SqlCommand("Select count(*) From Student", conn)
                cmd2 = New SqlCommand("Select * From Student", conn)
                Dim count_all As Integer = Convert.ToInt32(cmd1.ExecuteScalar)
                ProgressBar1.Maximum = count_all
                Dim reader = cmd2.ExecuteReader
                While reader.Read
                    ProgressBar1.Value += 1
                    Dim lvi As New ListViewItem(reader.Item("Id").ToString)
                End While
            End Using
        End Sub
    End Class

    Best Regards,
