Working... Please wait...

I need to do such a message on the screen like: Working... Please Wait!... when the program is saving files, or loading a routine that takes some time in the background.
Anybody can help on this?

Try this ...

a) create a Text Object with the desired message ... let us call this object "WaitMessage" ... place it outside the space occupied by your pub (so user will not see it under normal operating conditions)

b) before you start the "operations of long duration" ...
Code: Select all
CustomWindow "" "-1" "-1" "WaitMessage" "NoBorder+Exclusive+NoCloseBtn"

c) and after the operation is complete ...
Code: Select all
CloseCustomWindow "WaitMessage"
