Timer Control

See Also    Example    Properties    Methods    Events

A Timer control can execute code at regular intervals by causing a Timer event to occur.




The Timer control, invisible to the user, is useful for background processing.

You can't set the Enabled property of a Timer for a multiple selection of controls other than Timer controls.

There is no practical limit on the number of active timer controls you can have in Visual Basic running under Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT.
