I have written my code in VB6.
I would like the code to pause when variable x = 1, and the program will continue when I hit a key or something of that sort.
Could you give me a hand on this?

There are different ways to approach this based on your actuall requirement.

-- You can use a timer and make the timer active when x=1 and inactive when its not.

-- else you can use the sleep and then resume when the value of x changes.

Both methods depends on where you use it.

Thank you Binoj for the prompt response.
For my code, either if I use the timer or sleep, x will not change by itself unless the program continues again.
Is there a way that sleep can be deactivated by a key stroke? Surprisingly VB6 doesn't recognizes Sleep!!

See you can use the timer method and activate and deactivate the timer on a key event. To use the Sleep function you have import the API reference in your project.
