I noticed that the Timer control when active (have it recall its special procedure at periodic intervals) gets suspended when you call msgbox(). Is there a way to set the msgbox() to have it NOT suspend Timer or must i recreate the message box that i want by making a new form and then making it modeless?  I was hoping i didnt have to do this.

Thanks

You could create an out of process activex exe, to run the timer process, but it would be much easier to create your own msgbox form, and You can even show this with vbmodal.

>Timer gets suspended when you call msgbox().
Only in IDE. It works when compiled.
