Hi,

 I need to set a timer for a function to be executed(or called) every two seconds in a dialog based application. I need it to start for example when I click on a button and stop when I click on another button. If possible please provide me with the code or steps.

Thank you all

Use SetTimer and KillTimer, like this:
OnStartButton ()
SetTimer ( 1, 2000, NULL );

OnStopButton ()
KillTimer ( 1 );


Then you must create a handler for the WM_TIMER message:
void OnTimer(UINT nIDEvent)
//The nIDEvent contains the ID you set as the first parameter in SetTimer ().

Hope this helps...
