  • VB6 Crew, Timer Control Question

    hiya

    I'm looking for a more accurate timer control. The built in one in VB isn't accurate enough when the interval is set lower than 100ms, and it's causing some songs to show as being up to half a second shorter than they really are (i know, it doesn't sound like a big problem, but in my case it's a huge problem).

    I'd really like to see a timer control that is accurate to 10ms, but I'm probably going to end up disappointed.

    Any ideas?

    Try this

    Hi,

    Not trying to be a smart arse but Google provided this when searching for "vb timer accuracy"

    http://gpwiki.org/index.php/VB:Timers

    It seems to explain the problem and the viable solutions better than I could, despite developing software in VB since the earliest DOS version.

    I hope that this helps!

    cool dude

      Lookup VB Timer API. These are some Modules that are prebuilt to replace it. I can get you an example if you need but searching Google would be your best bet so you have a better idea of how it works.

        Here is another example I used in an old project once (has some sample code)
