how can i delay procedures? i want to sloa down graphical output so that it can be followed by the user.

can someone help me out?

RE: delaying procedures

You could use the Windows SetTimer API call to start a timer like this: SetTimer(hwnd, 1, 100, NULL) for a timer interval of 0.1 second (100 milliseconds). See below for details.

UINT SetTimer(hwnd, idTimer, uTimeout, tmprc)

HWND hwnd; /* handle of window for timer messages */
UINT idTimer; /* timer identifier */
UINT uTimeout; /* time-out duration in millisecs*/
TIMERPROC tmprc; /* instance address of timer procedure NULL if you want WM_TIMER messages */

Then all your program has to do is repond to the WM_TIMER messages it recieves. When it is done with the timer, call KillTimer(hwnd, 1) to kill the above #1 timer.....
I hope this helps...
