Hi. I am making an HttpConnection in my app and loading content into the application. Depending on the length of content this operation may take quite long on a regular phone and during this time the application seems as if it has stopped responding.
So, what I would like to do is display a message (TextBox or an Alert) informing the user that application is trying to connect.
I tried setting current displayable to Alert, and then calling the method making HttpConnection. At the end of the method, when connection has been made and data has been transferred, I am setting Displayable to a TextBox with the retrieved data.
However, the application skips the alert screen and goes directly to making HttpConnection and the TextBox.
So, my question is how can I display one screen until an operation is complete and then show another screen? Thank you for the input.
