Hi, sorry this is a relatively newbie question, but how would I go about specifically creating an event that happens on a timed basis in a windows form application?
To provide detail of what I actually am trying to do, I want to create a UI that displays the current status of a program running on a microcontroller via serial communication. I can currently open the serial port and read in & update on a button press, but what I want the forms app to do is repeatedly be checking the serial port, then processing the information and displaying it to the user. I am currently unsure of how to create an event that repeatedly occurs on a timed basis rather than on prompting.
I would want to check the serial port to see if any messages were received maybe 10 times / second and have it update the display on-screen.
I've looked around but can't seem to find something that specifically lists how to do this.
Any help or pointers to appropriate resources would be much appreciated, thanks!
