    Counting within timers in Visual Basic

    Hi,
    I have a small app in VB with eight buttons. These are named "fixt1_b" , "fixt2_b", "fixt3_b" and so on.
    I have a timer, and on each interval I want it to call the Click sub for the next button (fixt1_b_Click then fixt2_b_Click and so on). But I can't get this to work!

    I anyone can help me, please do as it's greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,
    Killno

    Code:
    Private m_Count as Integer
    
    Sub Timer1_Timer()
    
    m_Count  = m_Count + 1
    
    Select case m_Count
    	case 1
    		fixt1_b_Click
    	case 2
    		fixt2_b_Click
    	case 3
    		fixt3_b_Click
    ...
    	case 8
    		fixt8_b_Click
    		m_Count = 0
    End Select
    
    End Sub
    Please make sure timer is enabled and has appropriate interval.

    God, I hate VB now that I learned C++. It's messy.

    I feel the same way, but I think VB .NET is more cleaner (stil not as clean as C++ though ). It's also harder to do many things than it was in 6 though.

    Come on, enough guys.

    Consider this, VB does not need the semi colons and colons that festoon our preferred language, (neither does Fortran - mine), which is smarter?

    killno:

    Follow the link given, you'll get a lot more help with your VB problem there than at CProg, which really is a C/C++ site.

    Good luck.
