label.text = "before"
system.threading.thread.sleep(5000)
label.text = "after"

Note that the app is locked during the 5 sec. If you don't want this, you
can use a Timer (see System.Windows.Forms.Timer) instead. After setting the
label the first time, enable the timer (interval = 5000). In the Timer's
Tick event, disable the timer and set the label text again.

Hi Amit,

Have a look at timer,
there are 3 can use the most simple for this the forms.form.timer

Although if you do not mind that your form freze you can also do
Roughly written here in this message
\\\
dim a as string() = {"Before","Middle","After"}
for i as integer = 0 to a.lenght - 1
label1.text = a(i)
threading.thread.sleep(5000)
next
///
I hope this helps

You can make a loop looping from 1 to 5 and let the thread sleep for 1
second, then call 'Application.DoEvents'. Quick and dirty, I know.

At class level, store the information on what string to show next. In the
Timer's Tick event:
1. Use the information to show the string.
2. Change the information (an Index in a string array? Depends on your
needs) in order to show the right string next time. For example, increment
the index.
