Try a look with a sleep function


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

Open in new window

What do you need to happen every three seconds?
