How to show a message on the screen to advise that the programme is trying to locate a record in a very large Table?
I use a label with the caption 'Locating record.Please wait' with its
property Visible set to False at design time.
I use Label1.Visible := True right before the locate function and
Label1.Visible := False after the record is located.
The wording seems logical but the fact is that the label is NEVER shown
on the screen.
Can anyone advise the correct technique to use in order to have the label duly displayed?.
Thanks a lot in advance.
