    Hello All!!

    I'm looking to create a timer, this is what I need it to do.
    It's needs to be controlled by the server, START, STOP and amount of seconds
    to countdown to.
    The client computer will see the timer countdown and that's it. When the
    countdown is at 0, the question and multiple choice answers will be disabled.

    The next question will come up, disabled, and will only be enabled when the
    person at the server starts the timer again.
    This will be over a small network of 20 to 100 client workstations, and will
    only be on a intranet.

    Any thoughts?

    TIA

    Hi Rudy,

    In the .NET Framework 2.0 you could possibly use Async web service calls -
    one in particular that will fire an event that could be called "TimeOut"...
