"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you by change mean, displaying a new text - like setting the label1.caption = 'My Text', then i suggest that you take a TTimer  and write an OnTimer eventhandler that updates the labels caption.

thanks for the imput!
however, whenever you are dealing with a beginner like me, it is always helpful to give an example.

i am happy with the correct direction that i was given

thanks agian ke


Sorry, I'll keep that in mind.
But if you next time write that you are new to Delphi I won't have to guess. Some people don't like if you write them as if they are newcommers, even that they might be.
You can also reject the answer and ask for an example.
