    I have a STATUSSTRIP placed on a form called DESKTOP, which is always ON TOP and present.  This form calls and runs everything in my VB.NET application, and happens to be the STARTUP form.  I call an PROC which is one of my MODULES instead of CLASS.  This PROC happens to run for a long time.  I would like for the PROC to post an update to the STATUSSTRIP located on my DESKTOP form (calling form) using the STATUSSTRIPLABEL.VALUE1 and STATUSSTRIPLABEL.TEXT properties.  How would I accomplish this?

    I tried using DESKTOP.STATUSSTRIP.TEXT = "Something..." and it would not work from my SUB.  Basically, my code would look like this on the FORM side.


        Call gsDoSomething

    The PROC being called will live in a MODULESOMETHING.VB file in my project and its code will resemble...

    PUBLIC SUB gsDoSomething()

        DESKTOP.STATUSSTRIPLABEL.TEXT = "Doing something..."


    Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    I am sending you a modified version of my previous sample. In this sample I pass as an argument the Desktop form instance to the PROC containing the long-running operation.

    Hope this helps.
