label to get it to repaint itself. Only then it shows its new value.
When you do not refresh the label, it is refresh when your code has
completed. As only then the events are handled by the system. So you could
use the ‘Do Events’ command, but it is much beter to just refrehs the label.
For more data search in MSDN for ‘Refresh’. It also gives you an example.
