(PDF, 583 Kb)

The MSH Library - Progress And Info Display code library provides mechanisms to display a "progress meter" and informational display form to keep users of your application notified about the progress of lengthy operations. The information display Form is popup/modal, so your application's user is prevented from using your application's interface, or the MS Access interface to start actions that may interfere with the process currently under way.

The Progress And Info Display library provides:

  • Display Form – a Form to display messages to the user. Use this Form to display progress messages of any detail, from a simple "Please Wait" message to step-by-step updates as to what your application is doing.
  • Display Form API – A standard module containing procedures to show & close the information display form, and to set the text that the information display Form shows. Use the procedures in this module as a programming interface to control the display Form.

MSH Library - Progress And Info Display v2014-10 has these additional features:

  • Contains full documentation in PDF format
  • Developed in MS Access VBA (Visual Basic for Applications)
  • For MS Access 2007 (Service Pack 3), MS Access 2010, and later
  • Modules, forms, and other database objects are unlocked and available for inspection and modification.
