How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

I have the following code:
Private Sub cmdDisplay_Click()
Dim intZone1 As Integer
Dim intZone2 As Integer
Dim intZone3 As Integer
Dim intZone4 As Integer

intZone1 = 1
intZone2 = 2
intZone3 = 3
intZone4 = 4

If (txtID.Text = 1) Then
txtFinalZone.Text = intZone1
End If

If (txtID.Text = 2) Then
txtFinalZone.Text = intZone2
End If

If (txtID.Text = 3) Then
txtFinalZone.Text = intZone3
End If

If (txtID.Text = 4) Then
txtFinalZone.Text = intZone4
End If
If (txtID.Text = 0) Then
Call Timer1_Timer
 If (txtID.Text = 1) Then
               "HOW CAN I DO THAT?"
End If
End If

End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()

Call Beep

End Sub


RE: How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

I'm not sure what you mean by resetting, but I thing Timer1_Timer.Enable = True will turn on the timer, and Timer1_Timer.Enable = False will turn it off. Hope that helps.

RE: How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

I think you should have said
Timer1.Enable = False
Timer1.Enable = True
That will reset the timer and then start it again from 0

RE: How Do I Reset the Timer in Visual Basic?

If Timer is a system function you may not be able to reset it to 0. The usual way of using it in other languages is just to store the value of timer at the point at which you wanted to zero it, say call it timer0 and then use timer()-timer0 from then on.

I am sure about this!
Disabling and the re-enabling restarts the timer from 0
