I am simulating a LED display panel and I am displaying messages stored in a database table. The program reads messages serialy and displays one each time it is read.

Now-a message can have one or more screen displys(at most 3) So I want to use a timer(or annything that will get the job done) to monitor if all the screens have been displayed so as to go on and display the next message.
