Adding a delay to a VBE program

Adding a delay to a VBE program

Adding a delay to a VBE program

I an reasonably new to VB and am looking to pause or delay an appliaction for a number of seconds. I have come up with this

Wait = Now
Do Until DateDiff("s", Wait, Now) > 2
Results = DoEvents

But this tends to pin my cpu to 100% and give me problems. I would rather it not effect my ability to go over the spreadsheet or the VBE program.

Any help would really be appreciated.

RE: Adding a delay to a VBE program

You can use either a timer control for this or if you have memoy load problems then you can use the sleep API. Just open the API viewer and copy the declaration for the sleep API in you general declaration region.
