Do you want the delay to occur from within your program?  If so, add the following line in your source code where you want the delay to occur in your program.

Delay(ms);

where ms is the length of time you want to delay your program in milliseconds.

BTW, you'll need to make sure one more line of code is in your program.  If you don't have this statement in your code already, for TWP to recognize the call to Delay, you need to put the following line of code under you program header and before your global variable declarations:

uses crt;

Otherwise, your compiler will give you an unknown identifier error.

I tested this on one of my programs, and it does work.

Good luck.
