"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try a look with a sleep function

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(300)

Add a check variable to break the loop when needed.

Set the Interval() property to 3000 for three seconds.
Set Enabled() property to True so it fires.
Double Click the Timer control to get the Tick() event.

Put your code in there:  
Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
    ' ... some code in here ...
End Sub
