First off, I'm really new to development...sys-admin is really my thing. With that said, though, I'm hoping this is just a simmple mistake
I'm trying to write a nice little vb.net app with VS2010 to work as a photobooth.
The problem I've run into is, when the user hits the "Take Picture" button, I want the app to count down from 9 seconds (on the screen) before taking the photo. And I'm trying to keep my timer sub generic to use for other purposes (you'll see another timer call currently rem'd out)
However, the app is starting the timer, it counts down on the screen, but the rest of the code is not waiting for the timer to reach 0 before continuing on...it's taking the picture immediately.
Hopefully that made sense. Here's the pertinent code:
Private Sub btnSnap_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSnap.Click Dim intImageGroupNumber As Integer lblDirections.Text = "Get Ready to have your picture taken!" timercount = 9 lblCountdown.Text = timercount.ToString() lblCountdown.Visible = True lblSeconds.Visible = True Timer1.Enabled = True Timer1.Start() CaptureImage() ' lblCountdown.Visible = False ' lblSeconds.Visible = False ' timercount = 3 ' Timer1.Enabled = True PreviewVideo(PictureBox1) End Sub Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick lblCountdown.Text = timercount.ToString() If timercount = 0 Then Timer1.Enabled = False Timer1.Stop() Else timercount -= 1 End If End Sub
