Hi All,
Is there a way to have more than form_Timer ?

Trying to have multiple timers like in visual basic for start and stop function of sprites.

I can move the cars around no problem but want to improve with timers.

I tried the components from FMS but they don't meet my needs.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. As far as I know, there's only one form timer event, but you can fire it more frequently than you need to perform multiple tasks.

This There is one Form Timer event.

However, it's not clear whether that is really what you need here. What, precisely, do you want to time? Why? I see the cars. What timing would be appropriate to movements of the cars?

I believe there probably is a way to time how long it takes to move each one individually, but again, what is the purpose and when would that timing be invoked?

Also, ought of curiosity, what "...components from FMS..." did you try? They have a lot of tools for a lot of purposes. It's hard to guess which ones you mean.
