    I have an database that runs on our network and is used by many individuals.
    People keep opening the app using it and not closing (just minimizing it). I
    set up a 15 min auto close feature using the on timer event in the Form
    propertyies dialog box. This works (shuts down) as i want it to. However
    there is no warning so I set up a MsgBox that prompts the user " this app
    will close in 10 seconds do you want to continue." If the user clicks no the
    app saves and closes. however if the user clicks continue how do i override
    the close function that timed out. I have the MsgBox triggered by the timer.
    I need another 10 second timer interval that starts after the first ( prompt
    or warning) that will then close the app.
    please advise and thank you for your help.

    I might have understood only a part of the question, but if you want the
    msgbox apear only 10 seconds and then shut down the application, if no
    decision was made
    Instead of msgbox, create a form that look like a message box, with a timer
    in it, so after 10 seconds, this form will shut down the application.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
