To all who helped with my 10 minute timer problem A BIG THANK YOU.

Next :sad: can some one show me how to get an event to occur based on the system clock ( e.g. I want my outside lights on my usb controller to go on at 8pm each night and off at 12 am)

Hope i'm not being greedy

when I read the code that you return I then begin to understand.

so i am learning

Many Thanks Again

Why not use a VB timer control to check what time it is every minute. If the time is the time of an event in your program, then have it carry out that action.
