why "CurrentThread" mpantana ? Sleep is a static method of the thread class that suspends whateever thread it is called from.

its not an option as you say it ...

public class foo {
    public static bar() { Console.Writeline("test"); }
}

now if I call foo.bar() it is no different than if I say foo f = new foo(); f.bar(); ... correct ?

I am creating an application that requires the user to press and hold their left mouse button.  While the left mouse button is pressed, I'd like a rapid mouse click event to happen.  EX: The code would simulate the user clicking and releasing their left mouse button, while the left mouse button is being held down.  When the user releases the left mouse button, the simulated clicking would stop.  Also, I would like to setup a delay between the clicks.  Is this possible? I am using Visual Basic 2008

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions
