Simulation , image control does not display images in correct order

Hey guys/ girls:

I am making a simulation in excel, but i am running into a problem

here is the code

boxes1.Picture = box3
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:03"))
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
boxes1.Picture = box1
Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:03"))

in the code boxes1 is the image control box3, and box1 are IPicDisp

You would think that as that code runs, i would first see box3 picture wait a couple of seconds and then see box1. But vba is not doing this. Instead it never displays box3 and shows box1 after 6 seconds. That is not what i want!!!

Has anyone run into this problem before?

Thanks for the help


  • You can try adding DoEvents before your first wait statement.
