HI.im new here..i would like to know if you could help me with the codes of the timer control.heres what i like to do...i would like to create a timer that has a time limit of seconds for example after 10 second the next form will appear..as simple as that..but i am not yet familiar with the codes in the timer specially using its seconds count only...please help me with this tnx...

Start by putting a timer and a text box on a form.
Set the timer's enabled property to TRUE and interval to 2000 (2 seconds, 2000 milliseconds)

Now in the timer's TIMER function, increment a value and put it in the text box's text property.

You now should have a program that counts every 2 seconds.

That should get you started.
