This sample form contains a text box and a spinner. Text you type in the text box is displayed in a WAIT WINDOW. You can set the spinner to the number of seconds you want to elapse between each WAIT WINDOW command.
In the InteractiveChange event of the spinner, the appropriate timer interval is set. The Interval property is 1/1000th of a second, so the interval is set to the spinner value * 1000.
THISFORM.Timer1.Interval = (THIS.Value * 1000)
In the Timer event, the
WAIT WINDOW command is issued.
WAIT WINDOW ALLTRIM(THISFORM.Text1.Value) TIMEOUT 0.5
The code associated with the Timer event can include any command or procedure: code to update data, check for mail, display system resources, and so on.
