How to utilize the timer control in WinForms?

Using a timer control in WinForm is very easy. Here are the steps for using a timer control:

  1. Find the Timer control in the Toolbox of WinForm and drag it onto the form.
  2. Set the properties of the timer control, such as the Interval (the time interval in milliseconds at which the timer triggers events).
  3. Double-click on the timer control, and write the timer’s Tick event handling method in the code. For example:
private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
    // 在这里编写定时器触发时执行的操作
  1. Start the timer in the Load event of the form. For example:
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  1. Stop the timer in the Closing event of the form. For example:
private void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e)

You can now use the timer control in WinForm to implement the functionality of executing certain operations at regular intervals.
