    How to pause the WM_Timer

    Hey, I have a program that utilizes the windows built in timer function.

    If you forgot what I'm talking about, go here.

    Anyway, so I know how to "KillTimer" and what not, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how to go about "pausing" this timer. I mean, I guess I could build in conditionals to *ignore* the timer for a while, but...I want it to be paused completely. Any ideas?

    Should I just KillTimer when its supposed to be paused, and then start it again...?

    Thanks for your help!

    The way you pause it it to ignore it.

    case WM_TIMER:

    if(paused) break;
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;

    Ah, okay, I just posted to make sure there wasn't an actual function like PauseTimer() or something. But I guess i'll just do the ignore thing then Thanks again.
