I use two setTIMER:


SetTimer(3401, 1200, NULL);

if (nIDEvent == 3401)



but if the time of 3401 is bigger than the time of 3402 it doesn't work..why?

What I have tried:

I tried to put time of 3401 the same of time of 3402 and it works, but time of 3401 must be bigger for my program...thanks

"it doesn't work"

it doesn't work..timer for 3402 doesn't start

I didn't say that setTimer(3401) is inside function of setTimer(3402);

Timer 3402 did start but you did not check for it in your if condition. Try the if condition below.

if (nIDEvent == 3401 || nIDEvent == 3402)

It is not necessary to test for both. I ran the code with only the test for 3401 and it successfully killed both timers.
