    Question [VB6] How do I Count down time?

    Q: How do I Count down time?

    A: This is actually a very simple process. Just add a Timer and a label to your form, make sure the Timer is enabled than add the following code to your form :

    Option Explicit
    'Create CountDown Object
    Dim Countdown As Date
    Private Sub Form_Load()
        Timer1.Interval = 1000 'One Second
        Countdown = "12:00:00" 'What Time To Start From
    End Sub
    Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
        Countdown = Countdown - (1 / 24 / 60 / 60) 'Subtract Seconds
        Label1.Caption = Format(Countdown, "hh:mm:ss") 'Display
    End Sub
    A full working sample is included in this post
