I want to make a pop up on load (like a nag screen) that says that this program is stolen if you aren't me, and have it count down 5 minutes, unless you enter a password, and then it bypasses the timer, and exits the message box....thanks for any help...

What do you want to happen when the timer counts down to zero then?

It would also be useful to know what language you are using, my crystal ball is a bit hazy today. :thumbsup:

So then what is the purpose of having to put in a password then if all I have to do is wait for the timer to run out? I guess I just don't understand the point.

I am trying to make an app that will eventually use the skype API client to use 10 lines to call on radio station number for radio station contests....

I want to have the timer so that someone will ruin their chances of winning if they do not know the password, and will have to wait 5 minutes, until the ok button is enabled....

I just threw the password thing in their last second, and it really doesn't matter about that if you don't know how to do it...I really just want to know the timer thing

It is not a question of not knowing how to do it, I was trying to understand your requirements. Now that I understand that you are attempting to cheat, I am not interested in helping anyway. And since we do not really approve of that sort of activity here anyway, this thread is now locked.
