Hello. I have a main menu that has these three things on it: 1) a tunnel status, 2) an ADO state connection and 3) a set of buttons tied to role with case statement based on temp vars. The code I have is hanging up (not responding) - I believe I am close but it still needs some refining. If adStateOpen or PLINK_PID is dropped a reconnect for either is available and will need to return to the loop. The main menu remains open for the entire session (minimized) until needed or a logout occurs.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Code:
Private Sub Form_Current()
Dim PLINK_PID As Variant 'variant includes both null and integer
'set all icons to false upon entry
Me.connected.Visible = False
Me.secured.Visible = False
Me.unconnected.Visible = False
Me.unsecured.Visible = False
Do While Not Me.Logout.ControlType = True
    Do While adStateOpen = 1
        Do While TempVars("PLINK_PID") <> Null 'this is the inner loop while we have a valid plink pid number
            'Debug.Print "We have a valid connection and tunnel pid so test for role access"
                    If (TempVars("PLINK_PID") > 0 And (adStateOpen = 1) = True) Then
                        'show both icons as locked with blue
                        Me.connected.Visible = True
                        Me.secured.Visible = True
                        'set ones not needed to false
                        Me.unconnected.Visible = False
                        Me.unsecured.Visible = False
                        End If
                    If (TempVars("PLINK_PID") = Null And (adStateOpen = 1) = False) Then
                        'show both icons as locked with blue
                        Me.connected.Visible = False
                        Me.secured.Visible = False
                        'set ones not needed to false
                        Me.unconnected.Visible = True
                        Me.unsecured.Visible = True
                        MsgBox ("Both the secure connection and the database connections have been lost! Please Reconnect to both.")
                        End If
                    If (TempVars("PLINK_PID") > 0 And (adStateOpen = 1) = False) Then
                        'show both icons as locked with blue

I haven't used TempVars yet (old dog, new trick) but typically you can't use = or <> to test for Null. You might try using the IsNull() function and Not as appropriate:

If IsNull(Blah) Then

If Not IsNull(Blah) Then
