Hey, I was reffered here by a friend and said that you solved his problem.

I am in High School and im doing SDD. I have been asked to design a washing machine user interface.

I have pretty muched finished. I have a timer, which has diffrent times for diffrent settings (eg 1 hours for regular, 45 mins for delicate etc..)

All was going well until i found out i need to add delay times (1 hour, 3, 6, 9 and 12).

Any idea on how i could go about doing that? Im not very good with VB (I am just learning) and I want to get a good mark.

I can put up the work if it would help solve the problem

Thanks in advance :)

Yes, post something of what you've done so far, making it a little clearer what you need to do.

I have 2 timers. Timer1 and Timer2.

I have to add a delay (in this example it's 3 seconds).

so I have a command button that enables Timer2 to count down 3 seconds. When that is done, it should start Timer1.

this is the code.

Private Sub Commandd1h_Click()
txt2Sec.Text = "3"
txt2Min.Text = "0"
txt2Hour.Text = "0"
Timer2.Enabled = True

Do Until txt2Sec.Text = 0 And txt2Min.Text = 0 And txt2Hour.Text = 0
Label10.Visible = True
Loop
Timer1.Enabled = True

End Sub

This freezes my computer.

these are the code to the timers.

Private Sub Timer2_Timer()

If txt2Sec.Text = 0 And txt2Min.Text = 0 And txt2Hour.Text = 0 Then
Timer1.Enabled = False
ElseIf txt2Sec.Text > 0 Then
txt2Sec.Text = txt2Sec.Text - 1
Else 'if zero
txt2Sec.Text = 59

If txt2Min.Text > 0 Then 'update mins
txt2Min.Text = txt2Min.Text - 1
Else
'check if Hour is 0, and if it is, then stop timer, else continue
txt2Min.Text = 59

If txt2Hour.Text > 0 Then 'update mins
txt2Hour.Text = txt2Hour.Text - 1
Else
'check if Hour is 0, and if it is, then stop timer, else continue
txt2Hour.Text = 0
End If

End If

End If
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()

If txtSec.Text = 0 And txtMin.Text = 0 And txtHour.Text = 0 Then
Timer1.Enabled = False
ElseIf txtSec.Text > 0 Then
txtSec.Text = txtSec.Text - 1
Else 'if zero
txtSec.Text = 59

If txtMin.Text > 0 Then 'update mins
txtMin.Text = txtMin.Text - 1
Else
'check if Hour is 0, and if it is, then stop timer, else continue
txtMin.Text = 59

If txtHour.Text > 0 Then 'update mins
txtHour.Text = txtHour.Text - 1
Else
'check if Hour is 0, and if it is, then stop timer, else continue
txtHour.Text = 0
End If

End If

End If

THIS IS URGENT

If all Timer2 does is count down 3 secs then switch to Timer1 then the code needed would be something like this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    txt2Sec.Text = 3
    Timer2.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer2_Timer()
txt2Sec.Text = txt2Sec.Text - 1

If txt2Sec.Text = 0 Then
    Timer2.Enabled = False
    Timer1.Enabled = True
End If

End Sub

First set the Interval property of the two timers to 1000 and the Enabled properties to False, and the text of each textbox to 0.
