Bad screen refresh with sound command

Hello,
When I use the "sound" command in my program, I've got problems with different controls on the form : all controlls should appear before the sound command runs and only some of them do that; the others appear after the sound command ends.

Here is the part of the code concerned.

Could anybody help me ?

Thank You

Sub App_Start
.......
If CBOptionsVocal.Checked Then
      Sleep (1000)
      Dire (Nb1)
      Select Operation
            Case "+"
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "plus.wav")
            Case "-"
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "moins.wav")
            Case "x"
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "fois.wav")
            Case ":"
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "divise.wav")
      End Select
      Sleep (1200)
      Dire (Nb2)
   End If
....
End Sub

Sub Dire (temp)
   Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & temp & ".wav")
   Sleep (1200)
End Sub

Sorry Agraham, but it doesn't work better...

Here is my new code with your idea...

B4X:
   If CBOptionsVocal.Checked Then
      Sleep (1000)
      Dire (Nb1)
      Select Operation
            Case "+"
            DoEvents 
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "plus.wav")
            Case "-"
            DoEvents 
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "moins.wav")
            Case "x"
            DoEvents 
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "fois.wav")
            Case ":"
            DoEvents 
                Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & "divise.wav")
      End Select
      Sleep (1200)
      Dire (Nb2)
   End If
End Sub

Sub Dire (temp)
   DoEvents 
   Sound (".\sons\" & CbOptionsLangue.Item(CbOptionsLangue.SelectedIndex) & "_" & temp & ".wav")
   Sleep (1200)
End Sub

Strange! I would have expected that to draw all the outstanding controls. Can you post a bit of code that shows the effect and are we talking about the device or desktop or both? Is this in the IDE and/or compiled with either compiler?

As almost every single command, the DoEvents is very usefull when placed in the correct place...
Here's my altered code, working very fast, and a bit more smooth in the "talking", at least, for my taste...

You are wright Cableguy : only one "doevents" is necessary, and before the first "sound" command.
I didn't apply very well Agraham's advice.
It works now.
Thank you both for your help.
