Stopping Multiple Timers - Stop Button To Stop Each Timer One At A Time

Feb 26, 2009

Alright, so I'm still working on the slot machine. I have three timers all independently going for my three "wheels" of the slot machine.

My issue, is that I'm trying to make a Stop button to stop each timer one at a time, and I'm not understanding why this code isn't working. The logic completely makes sense, and the first "wheel" stops when I click the button, however, it doesnt appear to stop the other two timers.



Self-Stopping Timer Won't Stop Itself?

Feb 6, 2012

I've been trying to create a timer that waits for another timer to finish with its coding and, when it's finished, executes a series of code before stopping itself.

This isn't the code for the actual program I wanted to implement this self-stopping timer in, but it's simple and has the exact same problem:

Public Class Form1
Private Synchro As New Timer()
Private Sub MeLoad() Handles Me.Load


The idea here is that it's suppose to (using a timer) show the messagebox ONCE and ONLY once per button click. However, what seems to happen (despite the fact that I have 4 ways of trying to tell it to stop) is that the program creates multiple messageboxes until there are a total of about 49 messageboxes on the screen at the same time. I don't know if I'm using the wrong event (unlikely as Tick seems to be the only timer event) or there's a way of stopping the timer that I don't know.

Stop Timer At A Random Time?

Dec 12, 2011

I'm working on a reaction time program where I'll be testing... well, reaction time of a user. For this program I'll need a timer to stop at a random time interval, say somewhere between 3 and 10 seconds. Anyone know of a technique to do this. I've done some research and it seems there are a bunch of different ways of generating a random number just not sure how to assign that number to a timer.

Out of curiosity, is there a way i can make a program stop or pause for a period of time (which i would choose) before continuing the code WITHOUT a timer.I think I've seen this done before, but I'm not positive.Also note that I'm talking about a forms application (not a console app if that would be any different.)

VS 2010 : Use A Stop Button To Stop A Loop?

Dec 7, 2009

I created a form and have the variable inputs for 4 motor run statements. Then with a start button the script starts and it is surrounded by a for next statement to loop 10 times. It works fine but if i need to stop the execution of the script with a stop button. I put the stop in a new section but of course does not work to do a motor stop. It just causes the exe to not respond till the loop is complete. Just need to be able to stop the Run1_Click button section.

Edit:I do not mind if it finishes the 4 motor run commands and then stops execution of the loop. So need to figure out a way to trigger a stop from a button on the form to stop the cycle. For the future the loop will be a variable integer input so 10 will not be the standard.

Edit::Does a ' Do ' statement sound like the thing to use? If so how and where would I place that? Have a Stop button on the form and it would stop after the 4th motor run command.

#End Region
Declare Function InitStp Lib "stp.dll" () As Integer
Declare Function RunMotor1 Lib "stp.dll" (ByVal steps As Integer, ByVal interval As Integer, ByVal direction As Integer, ByVal outputs As Integer) As Boolean

Timer In Class Won't Stop

Jun 29, 2010

I have a class (e.g. see Client class below) that holds details of clients that are connected to a server app of mine. In the class is a timer of type (System.Timers.Timer) which is supposed to act like a timeout notifier. When I send a message to a client I start the timer within the corresponding object. When I receive a message from a client I check where I received the message from and stop the timer in the corresponding object. If I dont receive a message within the defined period then an event is raised from within the object and I resend the message again. I do this a maximum of two times before giving up.[code]...

Timer To Run One Interval Only And Stop

Sep 3, 2010

How can I get a timer to run one interval,one interval only, and stop? Until now I have only used timers to keep running until I say to stop. Also I need a timer that will start at the beginning of, and run until any given process is completed.Upon completion it should shut off and tell me how long the process took. Kinda like a stop watch with a Stop / Start "Trigger".

VS 2010 - How To Stop Sub With Timer

Aug 31, 2011

I have a sub routine that connects to a database. If the database is unavailable it takes about 45 seconds to timeout, even though I used connect timeout=10 in the connection string.

So I figured I would try using a timer. This is how I have it
Private Sub SQLConn()
Private Sub Timer2_Tick
(this is where I need to put a command to stop the sub SQLConn)

I have the timer set at 10 seconds. Unless there is a better way to do this what command can I use to stop the connection or the sub?

Index System.timers.timer For When Time Has Elapsed?

Mar 8, 2011

I'm creating a multi-threaded application (although it is not at the moment) which will be connecting to a large number of sockets. I've noticed when a connection cannot be made the connect timeout is rather large, so I am trying to make my own. Here is what I have come up with...

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
AssignSockets(0, "", 80, False, False) 'shouldn't connect
AssignSockets(1, "", 80, False, False) 'should connect


Looking at the timeoutOccured() sub, you can see I'm unsure of how to specify which index to set. Efficiency is important since this will be housing a lot of connections at once. Something else that just came to mind, would .theTimer.Stop reset the tick value on the timer?

Timer Still Ticking After Stop When Using Auto-Reset = False?

Jun 21, 2011

I'm using a System.Timers.Timer in a service that seems to keep ticking after it has been disabled. I'm using autoreset = false so I would expect it to only tick once unless I start it up again. I'm calling stop again, just for good measure, but the timer keeps on ticking.I'm using VB.NET in .net 1.1 and don't have the option to change frameworks.Here is a simple console app to reproduce the issue. This is not the actual code from the project.I believe the interval is long enought to prevent any thread issues in raising the event multiple times, but I will admit I'm not a threading expert.

Module Module1
Private Timer As New System.Timers.Timer(10000)

VS 2010 Stop A Block Of Code Executing When User Clicks "Stop"?

Mar 1, 2011

I have a START and STOP button and when the user clicks "start" the program does a whole bunch of calculations and all. However, I noticed that when I was testing the program I clicked STOP the program continues to execute stuff.

My START code is basically a while loop that iteratively does some calculations.

So I just put a boolean variable as the while condition and when user clicks stop its set to false and when user clicks start its set to true. However, when I click stop, the condition is set to false yes but it still executes all the code until the condition is re-evaluated my question is how can I get out of the while loop when user instantly clicks "stop"?
