i am running a program that execute quite a numbers of loop. the program will not be responsive when running with those loop. i want to create a form that stay on top of the program and notify the user about the progress of execution.
How can i do that? i try to google the example but no luck. and the clue point me to use threading which i am not really good at (know a bit).
can anyone show me a very simple coding regarding to this problem? just a simple waiting form stay on the main form when the main program is executing a huge loop. after loop finish, the waiting screen gone.
Thanks your all help in advanced!

If the UI is Swing then you can use the wait cursor.

i need a form-like waiting screen instead of waiting cursor because it can provide more information (display on the waiting form) for the user.

What prevents you from putting a dialog in front of the main window whenever you need to?

I think this thread would sit better on our GUIs forum, so shall move it.
