Statusstrip and StatusLabel

11 New Member
Background:
The Program runs a query on a SQL Database, then it takes the gathered information and outputs it into an excel document and saves it to a specified location.

Problem:
Originally I was using a Label and ProgressBar Located in the form itself but for the sake of appearance I decided it would look better to create a StatusStrip. I relocated the uiFileCreationL abel and uiFileCreationP rogressBar to the Status strip as a StatusLabel and ProgressBar. After doing so the ProgressBar worked flawlessly and looked awesome, but the StatusLabel did not follow the ProgressBar's example of good behavior. The code is run inside a Button_Click and the label is supposed to update with the current Percentage of the Overall File Creation. The Only time the label actually updates its text, despite the fact that the code says it should update 4 times for 1 set of files or 6 times for 2 sets of files, is the last time of the updates.

Question:
How can I make the StatusLabel Text update itself? Do I need to call a separate function outside of the Button_Click to update the text specifically?


Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Button1_Click(ByVal sender as System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
  2. ‘ Declarations and other code
  3.  
  4. ' Progress Bar Initialization
  5. uiFileCreationProgressBar.Maximum = uiDistrictsSelectedListBox.Items.Count * 2
  6.             uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value = dCount
  7.             uiFileCreationLabel.Text = uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value '"Starting File Creation"
  8.  
  9.             Me.UseWaitCursor = True
  10.  
  11.             ' For-loop to Create seperate Query files
  12.             For dCount = 0 To uiDSelectedListBox.Items.Count - 1
  13.                 ' Set file name
  14.                 If (uiUploadTypeComboBox.SelectedIndex = 1) Then
  15.                     fileName = "Custom - " _
  16.                     & Convert.ToString(uiDSelectedListBox.Items.Item(dCount))
  17.                 Else
  18.                     fileName = Convert.ToString(uiDSelectedListBox.Items.Item(dCount))
  19.                 End If
  20.  
  21.                 File1Create(fileLocation, fileName, dCount, connstring)
  22.                 uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value = dCount * 2 + 1
  23.                 uiFileCreationLabel.Text = Convert.ToInt32((((dCount * 2) + 1) / (uiDSelectedListBox.Items.Count * 2)) * 100) & "% Complete"
  24.                 File2Create (fileLocation, fileName, dCount, connstring)
  25.                 uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value = dCount * 2 + 2
  26.                 uiFileCreationLabel.Text = Convert.ToInt32((((dCount * 2) + 2) / (uiDSelectedListBox.Items.Count * 2)) * 100) & "% Complete"
  27.             Next
  28.  
  29.             ' Remove wait cursor
  30.             uiFileCreationLabel.Text = uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value '"100% Completed"
  31.             Me.UseWaitCursor = False
  32.             MsgBox("File(s) Created Succesfully.", 0, "File Creation Status")
  33.             uiFileCreationLabel.Text = uiFileCreationProgressBar.Value '"Press View Report to Begin."

Whenever you want a control to re-draw itself, use the .Update() function on it.

myStatusLAbel.U pdate() will force the UI to redraw itself.

I didn't look to closely at your code, but this works fairly often to solve that kind of problem.

I ended up figuring it out. I'm not sure if you can update the label itself but what i was able to do is tell the StatusStrip to .Refresh() and that refreshes the label and progress bar.

Thank you for your help though.

All controls have the .Update(), Refresh() is roughly the same thing though.

When you add a StatusStrip to a WinForm and add a Progressbar to the StatusStrip, setting the Progressbar alignment to "Right" does not move the Progressbar to the right on the Statusbar. Is this a bug?
