        'EndDate = StartDate.AddMinutes(1)
        EndDate = StartDate.AddDays(3)
        Label12.Visible = False
        Timer1.Interval = "1000"

    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        RemainingTime = EndDate - Date.Now
        remaining = RemainingTime.TotalSeconds
        If remaining > 0 Then

            Label3.Text = RemainingTime.Days
            Label4.Text = RemainingTime.Hours
            Label5.Text = RemainingTime.Minutes
