I am trying to have a program wait before execution however Threading.sleep does not allow execution while it's waiting.  

I'm trying to set up a timer to pause execution but I'm unsure how to do it.

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentCompleted(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                        ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowserDocumentCompletedEventArgs) _
                        Handles WebBrowser1.DocumentCompleted

        Dim t As Timer
        t.Start() 'how can I use this to delay the subsequent 
'lines of code.  Lets say I want a 3 second delay to allow
'a page to fully load (including javascript which the event
'is not waiting for).
        Dim MSDNpage As String = WebBrowser1.Document.Body.InnerText
        My.Computer.FileSystem.WriteAllText("C:\Quib\" & cnt & ".txt", MSDNpage, False)
    End Sub
