Idle time is often wasted time, however, sometimes you just need to wait for certain events to happen before you can continue code execution.VBA extends a couple of approaches to managing your idle time – the most popular approach is the Sleep procedure.Thanks in advance for your answers ^^ In Inventor the property is: Application.Screen Updating Property Introduced in Inventor 2009 Summary Gets and sets whether the screen is updated (redrawn) during a series of actions.The Multi-Purpose Query will work fine as it is, but you can make it even more user-friendly with the addition of a few refinements.The second part of this tutorial shows you how to turn your multi-purpose query into a really professional tool.
Let us start by introducing the VBA Sleep function. Wait is a native VBA function that pauses code execution until a certain time is reached. Wait function is: The time when the function should return e.g. That is why we need to aid ourselves with the use of either the Date Add function or the Time Value function: What does the function above do?
VBA thankfully allows you to also use another function called Do Events. Seriously, it doesn’t do anything more that handle all MS Office events.
Now why would we want to use the Do Events function you might ask? Wait does not allow you to wait for intervals shorter than 1 second? Need to wait for 500 milliseconds – no more no less?
Article contributed by Daryl Lucas Many people know they can speed execution of Word Automation by turning off screen updating: Word. Screen Updating = False Many do not know, however, that they can get an even greater speed boost by hiding the application altogether.
Here is an example from a Visual Basic client: In the above example, Word launches but does not appear anywhere on the screen. (It does, though, show up in NT's Task Manager, in its list of running processes.) Despite this apparent lack of response, Word is very active and quite capable of doing everything it is told-creating a new document, inserting the message, , saving the file, closing it, and quitting.
