To use the timer control:
First add the timer control to your Form:
Drag it from the ToolBox to your form
You can change the properties of Timer as needed, right click on it and click on Properties:If you set Enabled to True, Timer will start ticking as soon as the form loads. Default is False.
Interval: as described: The frequency of Elapsed events in milliseconds. 1000 = 1 second.
You can start the timer in your code. If you want to start the timer when you click a button for example:
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) _ Handles Button1.Click Timer1.Start() End Sub To stop it: Timer1.Stop()
To do things while timer is ticking, double click on the timer control, it should add the Timer.Tick event for you:
Private Sub Timer1_Tick(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) _ Handles Timer1.Tick ' Add your code here End Sub
You can also adjust the intervel frequency using a textbox:
Add a textbox, label and a button to your form:
Double Click the button and add the following code to the button click event:
Timer1.Interval = TextBox1.Text
