Apr 14, 2011

I have an application that provides a countdown for 60 minutes and I'm currently using the win form timer and it updates some labels and a progressbar. Now I have to change this to be a countdown for 360 minutes. Will the win form timer be sufficient or should I implement a Timers.Timer instead?

Force A User To Log Back Into To An Application If No Activity Is Detected For X Minutes?

Apr 22, 2010

I would like to try and implement a feature wherby once you have logged into an application (straightforward winforms application) and had your credetials verified the application would then force you to log on again if no activity had been detected in the application for a certain number of minutes. In essence I want to provide some extra security for those occasions when users get up and wander away from their machines for prolonged periods.

I have all the logic for logging into the application, it's just the checking for no activity over a given period and then forcing the user to log back in again that I'm not having much luck with.

Countdown Timer With Save?

Dec 11, 2009

I'm using Visual Basic 2010 and I'm trying to make a countdown timer and after I close the program the time which is counted to be saved. For example if I make a countdown timer to count 24 hours and I close the program at like 23:58:48 and then I start it again I want to continue the coutdown at the time it stops or to continue during the close time.Here is the code that i use:

Private alarmTime As Date
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
Me.alarmTime = Date.Now.AddMinutes(1440)


So with this code i can save the label text but when i try to make it run from it after the close it turns to somekind of a code and it countdown 50 min and the difference in the input time change it very slightly.

Display A Countdown From A Timer?

Jan 27, 2009

I am trying to display a countdown from a timer.

Dim r As New Random()
Timer1.Interval = r.Next(60000, 300000)
Timer1.Enabled = True
'Display countdown in 'Label2'

Also, I have a long mess of code (follow my signature) that compiles a sentence and displays it in a label. It works fine until I add the loop around the whole thing. Then it does nothing at all.~~the code is not finished. I have a lot of filters to put in place.

One more thing... After clicking "Add Me" button which saves a new player's profile, I want it to clear/reset all the fields so the next player has a clean slate to work with. Is there a way to do that?

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))

VS 2010 Making A Countdown?

So this is my code. Private Sub Up_img()
Control.CheckForIllegalCrossThreadCalls = False
Dim connection As New MySqlConnection("server=localhost;UID=root;PWD=;database=DB;")
Dim img_upload As String


How the logic is confusing. I was thinking of making a Variable that stores the time NOW and once the uploads 1 file, another variable will take the time and subtract it from the old time and times it by the number of files left. Or as you can see I have a little % calculation there and I could use that to calculate the amount of time left.Will that be consistent? Or are there other ways to achieve the result

Countdown Not Working When Picture Intersects

Oct 21, 2009

what i've been wanting my program to do is for the countdown to reduce time by 10 seconds when the melon hits the rope however, no matter how many different positions and variations i use with the code, even when the melons have vanished (through being hit by another picture) the picture i'm assuming is still travelling and hitting the ropes and reducing 10 seconds, even when it has vanished!? Would really appreciate it if someone could show me where i've done wrong.

Countdown Timer - Hours / Minute Format

Jun 12, 2009

I am working on code for a countdown timer, where 2 labels (Minutes label = label6 and Seconds label = label7). I have tried for a long time to try and get this to work, and it has to be "Hours:Minute" format. I will add below the awful start I have made

If Label7.Text = "1" Then
Label6.Text = (Label6.Text) - Val(1)
ElseIf Label7.Text = "1" Then
Label7.Text = "59"
[Code] .....

There is lots of bugs, such as the last minute is cut out, and it is just buggy, the user must be able to select a time/duration for the timer to work, and also this must be able to change every time the time reaches 00:00.
