I'm a beginner student learning Visual Basic 2010, and im trying to create an auction countdown timer in my form but I'm not sure how to do it. The countdown timer Im interested in would be similar to the ones found in BeezID or Swoopco, where the timer continuously counts down, then when a person makes a bid, the timer goes up by 5-10 seconds and continues the countdown. Can someone help me with the code? I searched google and found posts on similar topics, but nothing seemed to match what I'm looking for.
Thank you,

Dim i As Integer = 10

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If i > 0 Then
            i = 10
            Timer1.Enabled = True

            MessageBox.Show("Time Up")
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        If i > 0 Then
            i = i - 1
            Label1.Text = i.ToString()
            Timer1.Enabled = False
        End If
    End Sub
