VB.NET, Timer creation on the fly with different timer values

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I am calling a new class to start a logging session of different devices.

I need to create a timer control along with the sub-code that will be run for EACH timer being created in a loop

    Private Sub create_log_timers()

        Me.SensorMonitorTableAdapter.Fill(Me.Sensormonitor_Dataset.Sensors, True, serial_num)

        Dim x As Integer = 0
        Do Until x = Me.SensorMonitor_DataGridView.RowCount
            int_port = Me.SensorMonitor_DataGridView.Item(1, x).Value                                  ' get port #  - working
            sen_log_time = Me.SensorMonitor_DataGridView.Item(6, x).Value                          ' get port log time ---- working
            Dim y = "textbox" + int_port ' place on value on sensor change event to a text box linked to interface port # - working
            Dim t As New Timer ' Create a timer with port num as name

            ' ----- create timer code to send event to log
'write - private_sub timer(int_port) (by val...) handles timer(int_port).tick
 write  -         senslog.write_s_Log(Date.Now, int_port, sensorInArray(int_port).Text)
write  - end sub
            t.Interval = sen_log_time
            t.Enabled = True


    End Sub
