VS 2008 : Resuming A Countdown?

Dec 5, 2009

I'm trying to add a new feature to some software I have developed but am having difficulty. Essentially I want to add a 'Pause' and a 'Resume' feature.I have a timer which counts down.

Private Sub Timer_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer.Tick
Dim togo As TimeSpan = mTestEnd.Subtract(Now)
If togo.Ticks < 0 Then
Timer.Enabled = False


When the Start command button is clicked the timer starts counting down from what amount the user inputed. I've added an elseif to pause the timer and this works ok. When I click resume the although the timer text has paused the actual timer has not and continues from where the timer would be if it had not been stopped. Much like a stopwatch lap timer. Could you help me with my Else statement.

If StartButton.Text = "Start" Then
StartTime.Text = Format(DateTime.Now, "HH:mm:ss") 'Hour(Now) & ":" & Minute(Now) & ":" & Second(Now)
txtTimeLimit.Text = HourUp.Text & ":" & MinuteUp.Text & ":" & "0"
mTestEnd = Now.Add(TimeSpan.Parse(txtTimeLimit.Text))

Forms :: Resuming A Thread After AbortReset?

Nov 4, 2011

I am trying to find a way to resume a thread after catching the AbortThreadException and calling AbortReset.

My thread is running a loop to control two motors used in a raster scan. Once the button is pressed to begin the scan, I want to be able to click a stop scan button and have the following happen:

1. AbortThreadException is thrown and caught- a window comes up asking if you really want to abort the scan. Click yes for abort, no for suspend, or cancel to continue scanning.

2. Given users answer the program responds accordingly- If cancel, then the scan should continue right where it left off and not restart.

My problem occurs in my understanding of the thread events. I am not sure how to tell a thread to wait for a button event nor do i know how to tell a thread to continue where it left off. I also noticed that the 'suspend' and 'resume' methods have been deemed obsolete and i am not sure of the alternative way of doing those actions.

The following is the code used to catch the exception and execute the task.

Setting A Timer In .net Of 5 Seconds, Then Resuming To Next Form?

Jul 1, 2010

I want to make my form freeze for 5 seconds before it resumes to the next form.So I have a form that says : Establishing a connection....

But I don't want it to make a connection, i just want the user to think that it's making a connection.

And I then want it, when the timer reaches zero, that it would resume to the next form.

I just need the code of the timer behavior.

What Difference Is Between Pausing / Resuming And Stopping / Starting A Service

Aug 25, 2010

I am developing a Windows Service in VB2008 and am in the testing stage. What I have noticed is that if I Pause it while it is busy doing something and then resume it, the process generates an error. While I am debugging this I wanted to determine exactly what the difference is between Pausing/Resuming and Stopping/Starting a service.I searched, but most results simply told me how to Stop/Start/Pause and Resume a service, a hurdle that I jumped over many years ago. Does any one know of any resources that go into detail what happens when a service is stopped vs when it is paused?From some experimentation, it seems that if I do not place any code in the OnPause and OnContinue events the Pause/Resume commands have no effect.

.net - Find Media Item In WMP Media Library?

Apr 25, 2010

I am messing around with the WMPLib component provided by Windows Media Player 12 (wmp.dll) in VB.NET with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

I am trying to retrieve a media item from my media library based on its name (assuming there are no duplicate names). At the moment, I'm grabbing the entire media library, and looping through every media item, and quitting the loop when I've found the correct media item. This works well (except for when a media item with that name cannot be found), but I was hoping there was a more efficient way of doing this.

Here is my code so far:

Public Class WMPTest
Private myWMP As WMPLib.IWMPCore
Private myMediaCollection As WMPLib.IWMPMediaCollection


So what I really want is a way to optimize findTrack() to do its thing without looping through the entire media library (which could be huge).

Open Media File With Media Player?

Oct 27, 2009

I have created a media player (vb.net 2005) using the media player control. Plays fine when using open dialog box and url. I have set my player as the default player but when I click on a media file, the player will open but not play. I am sure it has to do with on open event and coding the url to see the selected file just like any other media player out there.

[2008] Get Form To Appear On Top Of Media Center?

Jan 19, 2009

i have media center's "put media center always on top UNchecked, but it doesn't seem to affect how the program works if it's maximized. I have a custom media control interface with functions that change depending on an event such as holding the button in. To show the user what it's SUPPOSED to be doing, i've tried a few different ways to get a notification to show over the top of media center's screen.

1. Had media center's display notifications turned on and showed a balloontip in the task bar... NO EFFECT

2. Found a MCE Plugin i can shell to, but am unable to actually find a download site in english for it

3. Wrote a simple vb.net program to give a popup form to show text but it appears behind the mce window always, even when i have the form's "always on top" checked, and i even tried the setwindowpos api call, although i might not have used it correctly since i manually converted it from vb6.

My final attempt will be to send the keycommand to "restore" the media center window which will open up some screen real estate on the bottom and right, exposing part of my program's window that i can show text on.

VS 2008 - Using Media.SoundPlayer() To Play 2 Sounds

Jan 6, 2010

I am using the following code to play sounds in my VB.NET application: [Code] now this works fine for any sound file. However there is a second sound file (sound2.wav) which I want to play sometimes too. I want sound2 to have priority over sound1, however if I play sound2 using this method and then sound1 also plays a second later, sound2 will be canceled for sound1 to play.

So I'd like to know if there's a way to either play both sounds at once, or to check if sound2 is playing before I play sound1, and then only play sound1 if sound2 is not currently playing.

Multithreading - .NET 4.0 Execute Multiple Threads But Threads Are Completed Before Resuming?

Oct 19, 2011

I just had a new, last-minute idea on to take on a task, so I am running to StackExchange for quick help.

What I want to do is execute a series of methods right in a row, each in their own threads. I want the application to wait until all of these threads are completed, after which the program will resume. It also has to use managed threading (thread pool).

What quick examples could you provide to help me along the way? If it's too complex, what things should I know about so that I can Google it on my own?
