Forms: Create a clock on a form

Author(s)
Dev Ashish

   To put a simple text clock on a form,  create a Label called lblClock on the form, set the form's TimerInterval to 1000, and the following code behind the Timer Event.

    You can also create two command buttons called cmdClockStart and cmdClockEnd and attach respective code to each to have the clock run on demand.

'***************** Code Start ***************
Private Sub Form_Timer()
    Me!lblClock.Caption = Format(Now, "dddd, mmm d yyyy, hh:mm:ss AMPM")
End Sub

Private Sub cmdClockStart_Click()
    Me.TimerInterval = 1000
End Sub

Private Sub cmdClockEnd_Click()
    Me.TimerInterval = 0
End Sub
'***************** Code End ***************
