I'm planning to build a form that needs to be able to perform asynchronus retrieves - in other words, lengthy retrieves - without locking up the gui for the user.
My idea is to let a service perform these retrieves whenever the user triggers a new search, and push the results into the gui contiously as the retrieves complete. perhaps via a utimer and asynch interrupt.
What do you say, Is this somehow possible? Can one initiate a service operation and simply "let it work" while the user goes on working in the form without waiting for the service to complete?
