VB Timer Object
Posted on 2002-05-08
We have a VB program that runs continuously. A Timer Control exists on the main form (which is not shown) which is set to fire every 9 seconds. On a particular site the program stops doing anything after a number of weeks and is swapped out of memory. We have put trace information into the application and it seems that the process is completing the code in its last call to the timer function but never starts a new one. i.e. it appears that the timer does not fire for some reason (or it does fire and the timer event is never picked up?).
Has anyone experienced this type of problem before or can anyone throw any light on possible causes?
P.S. This is related to my previous question on when Form_Load might get called (apart from at start-up) as the Form_Load function in our application does have a line of code to disable the timer under certain circumstances.
