Will you give me an EXAMPLE please,  on displaying a new text on a label  every 24 hrs with the aid of a TTimer.
In particular, give an example of a written  OnTImer eventhandler that updates the label caption every 24hrs.

p.s.  Isn't this really easier than 50 points?

try this (I haven't tested this for 24 hours, just for 1 minute)



unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  ExtCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Timer1: TTimer;
    btStart: TButton;
    Label1: TLabel;
    procedure Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
    procedure btStartClick(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;
  PassedTime: Cardinal;
implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
begin
inc(PassedTime); //every minute
if PassedTime=1440 then //after 24 hours (60 * 24);
   begin
   MessageDlg('24 hours passed',mtInformation,[mbok],0);
   label1.caption:='24 hours passed';
   //Here, you can restart this with
   //TimePassed:=0;
end;

procedure TForm1.btStartClick(Sender: TObject);
begin
timer1.interval:=60000; //Sets interval of timer1 to 60000 ms
                        //=1 minute
end;

end.

If it is in a 32bits program, i think you can give a timer interval of 86400000 (24*60*60*1000) and have your timer working once a day. However, in 16 bits (delphi 1) it will give an overflow.
