hi,
this is an easy question but please bear with me. i have a simple while loop, all i want to do is put a delay in it of about 10 milli seconds. in C i would use the "delay" function or sleep or usleep. how do i do this in delphi?

Just use Sleep(10). (It uses the unit windows.pas. The delay does not use cpu time, the 10 mili seconds are free for other tasks.)

You can find the documentation in Win32.hlp. I suggest to activate the full text index.
