The timer is an interesting and useful control in Visual Basic 2015. It can be used to create Visual Basic 2015 applications that are time-related. For example, you can use the timer to create a clock, a stopwatch, a dice, animation and more. Timer is a hidden control at runtime, just like the engine of a car. We shall illustrate the usage of timer using a few examples.
To create the clock, first of all, start a new project in Visual Basic 2015 and select a new Windows Application. You can give the project any name you wish, but we will name it MyClock. Change the text of the Form1 to MyClock in the properties window. Add the Timer control to the form by double-clicking it in the ToolBox.
To learn the details of using timer, we suggest you grab a copy of Visual Basic 2015 Made Easy.
