The Purple Parrot ScheduleTimer ActiveX Control, when placed on a form, provides the ability for users of your program to select a schedule. After setting a schedule, the ScheduleTimer control will inform your program when the scheduled date and time has arrived.

The display to the left shows the default options on the scheduler form. The "Occurs" option of "Never" indicates that no schedule has yet been defined. Other scheduler options are displayed below.
If a user selects the "Occurs" option of "Daily", the display shown to the left will appear. New options such as execution dates and time appear, to cause the control to execute every day at the selected time, subject to the date range selected.
If a user changes the "Occurs" option to "Weekly", the display shown to the will appear. In addition to the execution dates and time which also apply to the "Daily" option, a selector for each day of the week is provided to specify on which days to execute.
If a user changes the "Occurs" option to "Monthly", the display shown to the left will appear. In addition to the execution dates and time which also apply to the "Daily" option, a selector for each date in the month is provided to specify on which dates to execute.
If a user changes the "Occurs" option to "Every", one of the displays shown to the left will appear. The way this option works is that the control will signal an execution every so many hours or minutes, based upon the interval and frequency options selected.
