why don't you

Code: ( text )

' This variable will be the loop counter.
Private counter As Integer

Private Sub InitializeTimer()
' Run this procedure in an appropriate event.
counter = 0
Timer1.Interval = 600
Timer1.Enabled = True
End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
If counter => 10 Then
' Exit loop code.
Timer1.Enabled = False
counter = 0
Else
' Run your procedure here.
' Increment counter.
counter = counter + 1
TextBox5.Text = CStr(Int(Rnd() * 10))
TextBox6.Text = counter.ToString
End If
End Sub

you might want to use doevents, too
