    Exclamation Adding wait times;Delays pauses ect.

    How do you add Delays, Pauses

    I am asking is there a way to say this

    If Textbox1.Text = "hi" Then
    [Adding delay here]
    Msgbox("Displaying here")

    Additional information.. Is there a way for me too add a delay with a If statement as shown above. Like making it count to 5 seconds or ect. before running the next line of code. I would really appreciate anything other then Timer's because those are very finicky and don't apply updates. I would prefer anything other then a ordinary timer. Thanks for all your support and feedback, It's invaluable.

    Thread.Sleep(5000) pauses for 5 seconds before continuing execution.

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter

    Does this Freeze the Form?

    Oh yes. And it won't work on the main thread unless you import System.Threading!

    vb.net Code:
    1. Imports System.Threading
    2.  
    3. Public Class Form1
    4.  
    5.     Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    6.         Thread.Sleep(5000)
    7.         Button1.Text = "Time Up"
    8.     End Sub
    9. End Class

    Re: Adding wait times;Delays pauses ect.

    Okay thank you so much! The program legit Freeze's and Since It does that there is no seamless delay and I was hoping to accomplish that. Is there some sort of way I can do so.

    Like here..
    It is actually going to wait for 4.5 Seconds and then after that I will be displayed with the buttons being visible. I was really hoping for something that didn't actually freeze the form simply for its unprofessionality and also It doesn't act the way as intended.
    Code:
        Private Sub BtnDisp_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles BtnDisp.Click
            Thread.Sleep(1500)
            BtnAbout.Visible = True
            Thread.Sleep(1500)
            BtnWho.Visible = True
            Thread.Sleep(1500)
            BtnWhy.Visible = True
    First and for most I would like to thank you for helping but if you really really could help, If there is a way to add a delay without freezing Similar to the threading.
