I got another problem.
I am trying to achieve an AutoHide functionality in my label
So I tried to create a Class Library Project named InformationBar
Just a look at my code :
Imports System.Windows.Forms Imports System.Drawing Public Class InformationBar Inherits DevComponents.DotNetBar.LabelX Dim TimeOut As Integer Dim TimerForTimeOut As New Timer Dim i As Integer Public Property Time_Out() As Integer Get Return TimeOut End Get Set(ByVal value As Integer) TimeOut = value End Set End Property Private Sub InformationBar_VisibleChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.VisibleChanged If Me.Visible = True Then AddHandler TimerForTimeOut.Tick, AddressOf TimerForTimeOut_Tick TimerForTimeOut.Interval = 1000 TimerForTimeOut.Start() End If End Sub Private Sub TimerForTimeOut_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) i = i + 1 If i = TimeOut Then i = 0 Me.Visible = False TimerForTimeOut.Stop() End If Form1.Label1.Text = i Form1.Label2.Text = TimeOut End Sub End Class
Here Time_Out Property is Created. For the value of that Variable TimeOut is declared
i is another variable which increments by 1 everytime the timer is tick
This code should show a label for some time given by the user while a button is clicked and after that it should be vanished
While running this code :
If I give the value of timeOut = 10
then I click on the button the label is shown for 10 seconds after that it is hidden
Then I click the button Second time then the label should be shown again for 10 seconds but it is being shown for 7 to 8 seconds only and then again........the time of label shown decreases
I think this code should work but it didnt
It does not give me any error
So I decided that there should be some problem with variable i
I kept breakpoints but still I could not find any Problems
So I placed a label on the form and examined the values of i on each Tick of Timer
Here I got some strange results
the value of i when the button is clicked for the first time : 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.
the value of i when the button is clicked for second time : 1,3,5,7,9,1
the value of i when the button is clicked third time : 1,2,4,6,8,10
fourth time : 6, 10
and so on..........
thanks in advanced
