I have a following situation.
Form1 runs a printing routine after clicking OK.
Then Modeless form Form2 shows up with info what is being printed now.
I need a cancel button on Modeless form Form2 to stop all remaining tasks and exit.
At the moment cancel button in Form2 I have cannot be clicked when printing job is being done, so don't even know if End I have will work to stop procedures running ;).

A simplified version of what I have:

In Form1 - OK Button:
Code:
Private Sub ButtonOK_Click()
Me.Hide
Form2.Show
    For i = 1 To ItemsQty
                    Form2.Label1.Caption = "Item " & i
                    PreparePrintout(i)
                    PrintToNetworkPrinter
   Next i
Form2.Hide
Unload Form2
Unload Form1
End Sub
In Form2 - Cancel button:
Code:
Private Sub ButtonCancel_Click()
Unload Form1
Unload Form2
End
End Sub

try to put DoEvents in between separate procedures to see if this helps.
The other thing to check is if you can interact with form2 even when no code is running ?

Wow.. DoEvents worked like a charm...
Before that Label.Caption had been updated every random for loop, but now it displays every single iteration...

I have to read a little bit about DoEvents to know exactly what it does :)

Thanks.
