active x conrol programming
Posted on 1998-07-07
I'm making a trivia game with active x in vb 5. I'm really stumped on what to do. The game has 10 questions with 4 multiple choice answers each. I tried making a label for each answer and using the label click procedure for when the user clicked on an answer. I also wanted the user to be allowed only 10 seconds for each question so i used a timer control that would do that, but then I couldn't figure out how to use the timer for each different question, I could only find a way to use it with each question and that would have mean i would have needed 10 timer controls. I also wanted there to be a 2 second delay after the user clicked the right answer for him to go to the next question. I couldn't find a way to do that without using 10 more timer controls. I thought about using java instead of active x, but i dont' know alot about java. If anyone has any suggestions to help me please post them. Thanks.
