User Interface Freezes in VB6 when calling a function?

Mar 11 '13 at 09:05

I took the example off of your website of the SSH remote shell example just as a test.

What my question is and having difficulties is i set a textbox and button on the form

add the code below to the button, it will log in great but when it comes to ping test the form will freeze when i debug at this point in the code

Dim n As Long
 Dim pollTimeoutMs As Long
 pollTimeoutMs = 2000
 n = ssh.ChannelReadAndPoll(channelNum,pollTimeoutMs)
 If (n < 0) Then TextBox1.Text = TextBox1.Text & ssh.LastErrorText & vbCrLf
Exit Sub
 End If

what im looking to do really is start a shh connection, start of a ping scroll and let it scroll in the textbox.
