Hi,

I have no idea if I use 4 timer controls in my windows mobile application or windows CE.  Can I use more timer controls in my application or I should use variable (integer) to store counter with one timer? I need to know will it effect my application by performance? Will all timer can inter cross ?

4 timers is no problem. Timers give some overhead. So starting much of them will use cpu and fill up the messagepump. If you were talking about dozens this might be a problem, if the interval is very small.

Using timers is not an issue.But remember that timers will not work in suspended mode.Usualyl by default after 3 minutes mobile will be in suspended mode.If you want run a scheduled task then use CeRunAppAtTime function.Or otherwise change registry settings that it will never go to suspended mode.
