Q. How do you code a timer so a user can change the interval settings for a finished and running application???

I realize they would probably have to close and reopen the application for the settings to take effect..........

I tried this with complie errors:   timer1.Internal = txtBox1.Text

If you use the System.Threading.Timer object, you can use the Timer.Change() method.

This method takes, for example, a TimeSpan object, when the timer should invoke it methods, and as a second parameter, when the timer should re-invoke its method.

If you're using another timer object, let me know.

timer1.stop();
timer1.Interval=Integer.Parse(txtBox1.Text);
timer1.start();
