How do I suspend a timer ?
Posted on 1999-01-20
Is there any way to temporarily suspend a timer ? I'm writing a small automatic file back-up program (hopefully to run as a Tray Icon application) and would like to suspend the timer while the user is changing their back-up options (to prevent a back up going off while the user is changing things). At first I thought to set the interval property to 0 while the user is changing their options, but if I reset interval to it's original value afterwards then the timer starts from scratch again. Is there some way round this or am I barking up the wrong tree by trying to use the timer for this ?
