Hello everyone


In the following code, it is supoosed to get the label caption updated by time 1,2,...5

Sub Test()
    Dim i As Integer

    UserForm1.Show vbModeless
    For i = 1 To 5
        UserForm1.Label1.Caption = "status message " & i
        Application.Wait Now() + TimeValue("00:00:01")
    Next i
    Unload UserForm1
End Sub

But when loading the form, I can just see status message 1 and nothing else till the end

How can this be updated so as to get the status message 2 and status message 3 and so on..

And I welcome any other solutions if there are any ones.

Using Repaint is the appropriate way to do this. I use it often on UserForms with dynamic content. Here are a couple examples:
