Please explain how this form should be used.

Does it pop up automatically? If so when?

What is the point of delaying the reminder time?

What is the meaning of "Dismiss"? Does it mean delete the reminder? If not then what does it mean?

when a time reminder is due

What is the point of delaying the reminder time?
most reminder programs have this feature in case the user is busy doing something else

What is the meaning of "Dismiss"? Does it mean delete the reminder?
yes marked as done, only gets deleted if it is a "One Time Reminder"
then gets removed from the grid and the rtf is moved to the deleted Reminder folder

To quote text from one of my posts, copy it from my post and paste it into yours. Then highlight it and click the Quote symbol that you'll find to the left of the CODE symbol. That will make the posts easier to read.

when a time reminder is due
Are you saying that this applies to only to time reminders and not daily (date), weekly, monthly or yearly reminders?

most reminder programs have this feature in case the user is busy doing something else
If they're doing something else, how will they see the new form? If they can see the new form, why do they need it?

marked as done
What does that mean as far as the program is involved?

Here's a version of the app with a 10 seconds timer implemented. It does not yet have the new form. Changes include:
Fixed a couple of bugs with the viewing of deleted reminders if there are no reminders and the "View" column is clicked
Improved the display of Next Reminder so that values like "1 Hours" will be shown instead as "1 Hour".
Added timer to keep Next Reminder current

don't understand the quotes

If they're doing something else, how will they see the new form? If they can see the new form, why do they need it?
I talked to sister today, she agreed this was needed as she could be busy doing something else on the computer and wants to wait a lttle

marked as done
 the task is completed look into the rtf i sent and read it
each task type has a different way of marking as done

can you do like the question asks ?

I don't think we are communicating very well here so I'll implement what I think you want and you can test it and tell me what's wrong.

When you posted the new form above, the image named imgTime doesn't come with it. I need the icon for that image.

Here's an update that includes
Adding frmDeferTime
Adding  the icon as the Form icon on all forms. This is easily undone if you don't like it or they can be changed to a different icon.

You'll need to add the Time.ico file to the same folder where your forms are.
