Help With Label Refresh

P: n/a
Self Taught here so please bear with me.

I have the labelRestrictSites as private on the MainForm.cs. I then access
the labelRestrictSites.Text thru the public string LabelRestrictSites from
another class. So
when I add labelRestrictSites.refresh code to my class I get an error
because the labelRestrictSites
is private. How would I refresh?

****************************************
mainform.cs
private System.Windows.Forms.Label labelRestrictSites;

public string LabelRestrictSites

{

get { return labelRestrictSites.Text; }

set { labelRestrictSites.Text = value; }

}//end property

********************************************
RestircedSites.cs
private void AddRestrictedSites()
{
foreach(string x in strResSitesList)
{
MainForm frm = (MainForm)MainForm.ActiveForm;

frm.LabelRestrictSites = ((iTotal += 1).ToString());
}
}

Yogi_Bear_79,

Can you show the call to refresh? It's not in the sample code that you
posted. Also, what is the error that you are getting? It sounds like a
compile time error, but without seeing the code or the error, it's hard to
provide any insight.

I added the line of code in line below. The compile time error is:

MainForm.labeRestrictedSites is inaccessible due to it's protection level

Which I think I understand. That's why I have a public string to access the
text of this label. But I don't know/understand how to access the refresh
feature now

Yogi_Bear_79,

So if I understand correctly, you want to invoke a refresh from outside
of the class that is hosting the control. In this case, you would have to
expose either the control itself, and call Refresh on that, or create a
method that will call Refresh on the control for you.

Nicholas,

Yes this started because as my code updates the labels text value, it
doesn't appear to go up on the form. Meaning it goes from default of Zero,
to the end number in what appears to be an instant. The thinking was if we
invoked a refresh after every loop we could see the number grow. If I
understand you, I can create a method on the form class itself, then call
that method from my other class.
