This very much depends on the application and level of accuracy required. Your sample provides the simplest solution, but it lacks a degree of accuracy, as everything is processed on the UI thread. Using this system, a timer event is actually placed on the message queue when it is signalled, and thus needs to wait its turn to be processed. This can cause a delay small in the processing of the tick, which over time, may accumulate.

To go to the next level of accuracy, you need to look at a System.Threading.Timer[^]. These fire events off in another thread, so there is no queue delays. It does, however, take a bit of effort to marshal the results back to the UI thread to update your controls.

The most accurate timer is the High Resolution Timer used in the Stopwatch Class[^]. This does not fire its own events at all, so you need to monitor its values in a separate thread, fire the periodic events in another thread, and then marshal all the results back to the UI for display.

All three options are good fun!
Cheers,

Mick
