VS 2010 - Using System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000) To Let My App Pause/sleep For Some Time

May 25, 2010

Currently I'm using System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5000) to let my app pause/sleep for some time. This works great but I can't open my app anymore when it's sleeping and it uses about 25% of my CPU. I guess there must be a better way to do this. I also tried using a timer but that didn't work out to well for me..

Use "System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(15)" As The Delay Code But Freeze The Form

Jul 19, 2011

I've been trying to use "System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(15)" as the delay code but if freeze the form. I used this "Location.Refresh()" where location is the name of the form, but it didn't give me what I need. This code is going to work on a ProgressBar while typing and the value of the progress bar change while typing. The progress bar jumps to the new value and I want it to move. So I thought about puting it in a "For ... Loop" but the whole form freezes.

VS 2008 - Use The Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000) Code The Form Becomes Unresponsive

Jul 20, 2010

The coding that I have a problem with might make people think that I am creating some malware. So the project I am doing is associated with iTunes. iTunes allows people to have one library. There is another way, but it is very confusing to some people, and very unreliable. So my project is that I will allow people to have multiple iTunes libraries on one computer. So the problem is this. In order to have an option to choose your library, I gotta make sure that iTunes is not running.

So this is the script:

Private Sub CheckAndCloseiTunes()
retry:
'Custom class that includes the function to safely close iTunes
Dim Processes As Process() = Process.GetProcessesByName("iTunes")

[CODE]...

So when I use the Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000) code, the form becomes unresponsive.

Pause In Code Can't Use Sleep Function?

Jan 4, 2011

"'I'm having an issue sorting out why my code isnt working. When I "step into" it line by line i can get it all to work exactly how I want, however when I actually run the macro i get an subscript error 9. The code basicly sets a .CSV url to a variable "CurrentURL". The code then launches this url which opens a .csv window called table.csv. I want to copy 2 columns off this window and paste it to another document called "MPT_CAPM_v1", then close table.csv. Here is my code the red line is where I believe I'm running into my error.'This macro opens a URL, copies and pastes the price data into the sheet

[Code]...

I think the error may be caused by the fact it takes about 4-5 seconds to open table.csv in excel, and my line of code is trying to select a window that isnt currently open. After I get the error message, table.csv opens up. I've tried Loops & Sleep functions to try to input a delay, but regardless it seems that table.csv will not open until the end of said loop or delay.

Threading Pausing Not Using Sleep

Forms :: Threading And Modules And Sleep

Mar 31, 2011

I have a frm_Main, which starts a thread. The thread then goes and calls a module, which has a thread.sleep() in it. This causes the mouse to freeze up while it sleeps, despite being called by the child thread. I thought this would have be on the thread time-slice? However it is causing my form to freeze for the sleep duration.

Inconsistant Thread Sleep Timer?

Apr 5, 2011

Ok so I have been playing with VB.net and brainstorming ways to accomplish launching a thread reliably every 60 seconds reguardless of how long the prior thread took to do it's work. Here is my question. Given the following code:

[Code]...

My assumption for this output would be that the time between each line would have to be exactly 5000 milliseconds plus the time it takes to execute the rest of the loop which could vary given that there could be an unknown delay due to disk IO. My problem is that looking at lines 10 and 11 and subtracting gives me a difference of 4,958 milliseconds. So my question is what the heck is going on there? How is it possible to get a difference of less than 5000 milliseconds when I have told the thread to sleep for 5000 milliseconds before completing the process. What am I missing?

I have a control thread that starts up a secondary thread and when the secondary thread finishes, the control thread restarts the secondary thread.  On this secondary thread, I use a stopwatch to record a thread.sleep event.  Is there any reason, under any circumstance, why the stopwatch elapsed millisecond value (499) would be 1ms less than the sleep time (500 ms)This doesn't happen all the time or even a lot, I'm just curious if there is any physical reason for this to happen.

.net - Yield/Sleep/throttle Another Thread While It Is Executing A Method In An External Library - Specifically Jurassic?

Jun 25, 2012

I am using a .Net JavaScript implementation called Jurassic to run user-controlled scripts within my .Net 4 WPF application coded in VB.Net - C# answers are fine. The script engine runs on its own thread and provides an API for the script to interact with my application. This all works really nicely until a user executes a script that causes an infinite loop and takes out a core of the processor.

[Code]...

The reason I care about keeping the thread alive is because the user who wrote the script and the user who is running it may not be the same, and I want to keep the experience as smooth as possible the the user running the thread. There also might be legitimate situations in which a single JavaScript function would run for a long time and I do not want to kill that, I just want to stop being allowed to hog the resources.

Solutions that involve stopping the thread from slowing down the system but that still show high CPU usage are not preferable because I do not want the user to wrongly feel that the application is resource intensive.

Sleep API From Kernel32 / Threads

Nov 10, 2010

I have a multi-threaded report engine application. I know that if I want to pause a thread for an interval I can use Thread.Sleep. What I need however, is to be able to suspend the entire process including all threads for a set period of time. In the past, I've used the Sleep API from kernel32.

It appears though that it's only "sleeping" my current thread and not the entire process which is not what I expected (now that I've read the documentation I realize that Thread.Sleep is probably the managed implementation of this API which is why it behaves as it does). So, my question, how do I force the entire application (and all of its threads) to pause the for the interval and not just the thread calling it? Private Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Int32)

The problem is that the loop doesn't sleep. I want to trigger the animation, then wait until the rectangle fill is changed and then continue with the rest, but it seems that all of the rectangles fill are changed in the same time.

Delay Loops Without Using (Sleep Or Timer)

Dec 20, 2009

Is there is way to delay loops without using (Sleep or timer) in VB

Because on java you cant do something like this

For(i = 0; i< 100; i++) {
Event.Wait(3000)
Animate(i);
}

I dont want to use sleep because your control is dead while is at sleep And using timer waste memory and process timer plus more coding is needed!
