Re: Timer Event in Outlook Custom Form

Sort of but not really. With form code VBScript you cannot call any Win32 API calls, so using a system timer is out. Most ActiveX controls such as any timers you might have from something like VB6 probably won't work too well in a form and won't fire a timer elapsed event for you. About the best would be to loop and check the system time (Now) and compare the current and start values to derive the interval.
