There does not seem to be any icon or hourglass anywhere on the screen indicating that the macro is still running. I do have a MsgBox at the end of my macros, so I do know it hasn't finished in that sense. But I'd like to see some kind of hourglass somewhere?
Hi dandreae You will get notified while the macro is running via a messagebox and when its completed.
Unless I add my own MsgBox at the end of the macro, I can't see anything on the screen indicating that the macro is running or completed. I'm using Data Architect 17.1.0
If I am running it within the macro editor then it is all ok. So I am just referring to running the macro directly, outside the editor.
This is a long known complaint. There is no way. Creating your own messagebox is one of the few workarounds. If you want to get fancy you can create a dialog that implements a progress indicator but nothing built-in is available. I no longer have a license so I can't write or test code to show an example of creating a progress dialog.
thank you, it's good to know I'm not just missing something. I can cope with just having a messagebox.
