Hi,

In VB6.
This is very strange, after form loaded, the timer1 wont be fired until I click button1.

Private Sub Form_Load()
Timer1.Enabled = True
Timer1.Interval = 100
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Timer1.Enabled = False
Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
Label2 = Now
End Sub

Try to change to this
Private Sub Form_Load()

Timer1.Interval = 100

Timer1.Enabled = True

End Sub

Open in new window

and what about this:

Private Sub Form_Load()
  Timer1.Enabled = False
  Timer1.Interval = 100
  Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Open in new window

FYI, it worked for me without the need to restart the timer. (VB6, SP6 under W2000, SP4).

It may be a version thing, or your project/form may be corrupt. See if the same thing happens with a new project.

if the timer is enabled at design time, it won't work (at least it does not for me).
if the timer is disabled at design time, it works without the line .enabled = false.

That might be the difference. In design mode it is enabled by default, so it doesn't occur to me that a programmer would change that setting and then be surprised at the effect.

Actually, I now see that it in the user's project the control is enabled in the Form_Load event, so I am as mystified as before.
