Nothing else that waiting for information from the net server which will

Response times from the server (depending on data amount and DB access) 
go between 0.5 and 2 secs. A classic wait modal window will be annoying. 
On a user point of view, click a button and see result within 2 or 3 
seconds. With WinCE hand held devices (240 x 320) windows managing looks 
like the horror room.
and the timer event (or
