Hi all,

I've got my restore database code working good but was wondering if there is anyway to get some feedback from the SQL server during the restore?

Dim sqlstr As String

        sqlstr = "restore database " + dbNameFinal + " from disk ='" + tbBAKpath.Text + "' with move '" + originalDBname + "' to '" + tbRestorePath.Text + "\" + dbNameFinal + ".MDF' , move '" + origianlLOGname + "' to '" + tbRestorePath.Text + "\" + dbLogNameFinal + ".LDF'"

        Dim SQLConn As New SqlConnection() 'The SQL Connection
        Dim SQLCmd As New SqlCommand() 'The SQL Command
        SQLCmd.CommandTimeout = 600
        SQLConn.ConnectionString = ConnString 'Set the Connection String
        SQLConn.Open() 'Open the connection

        SQLCmd.Connection = SQLConn 'Sets the Connection to use with the SQL Command
        SQLCmd.CommandText = sqlstr 'Sets the SQL String
            Dim dr1 As SqlDataReader
            dr1 = SQLCmd.ExecuteReader() 'Executes SQL Commands Non-Querys only
            While dr1.Read
                lblSQLcommandStatus.Visible = True
                lblSQLcommandStatus.Text = dr1.ToString

            End While
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
        End Try

I've tried this back it doesnt do anything.

Thanks in advance...

Cool, thanks man. I'm assuming you can use the same handler call for most SQL query's?

What do you mean? Most SQL calls don't return progress back like a restore operation. Unless you mean the connection.open -- command.execute methods, then yes. That is how you interface with the SQL Server.

I ment like create database, delete, attach , detach etc.

Yeah but as far as I know those don't report progres... they just execute and finish. The only thing I know to report progress is a backup/restore. But you can subscribe to the events and take a look :)
