I'm trying to create a code with some millisecond delay time in loop routine.
I don't know how to do it. Please help me.

my code :

C#
for (i=1;i<10;i++)
{
   int a=mycode(); // mycode is my function name, it will return the delay time
   System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(Delay_Time_cell);
   Application.DoEvents();
}

int mycode()
{
.....
.....
.....
return;
}


But delay time is not working?

If you are unable to use Thread.Sleep for some reason then you can always use a simple dummy for loop.

for(int idelay=0; iDelay < 10000; iDelay++);

This causes the CPU to spin uselessly. Thread.Sleep is much better and there is no reason it shouldn't work.

Hmmm... you have point. yet, a way for milli seconds it should be fine.
further, OP was having problem with sleep was just an alternative.
you can use timer
if the thread is not working...
