here's my situation: I need to call a function after a certain amount of time passes (user determines length of time using a trackbar) we will refer to this value as X.  however, I also need to put a limit on how long the function can run (say about 5 seconds) this value is Y.  so the end result would be that the function would be called every X seconds, but once the function was running if it ran Y seconds then it would be interupted.... now that I have typed this it seems a bit confusing, feel free to ask for more details.  thank you
