    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to understand something here. I have a windows app that starts out with a main screen. You click a toolbar button and it opens up an appointments screen. In the Form's class declaration, I create an instance of a user defined class. I have a timer declared within that user defined class. It seems that from the main form when I create an instance of the appointments form, it hits the class declaration for the user defined class for the first time. But it hits it a second time when the code says It is like it is creating 2 instances of the timer. When you actually create and then show a form, do the classes that are created within that form actually get initialized 2 times????? Why would my timer be created 2 times. I only have one new statement for the timer and that is withing the form class header.

    Can you post some code how you create and show the second from and how you create and start the timer ?

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I just found the problem.
    It was my fault.
    In the appointments code, I actually had 2 classes defined:
    Doctors and MySQL.
    The appointments form created and instance of MySQL and so did Doctors. That is what I was looking over, Doctors.

    Thanks a million for the reply,
