Well, I know it might sound stupid, but it's still worth trying. I'm just making some code that changes the color of the BackColor of the main form. I also plan on making it so that if I press the + it speeds up, - it slows down, r for red, b for blue, g for green. I'm just in need of some help with the Timer bit. I want to make it so that I have two COLOR variables, and when I press one of the color buttons, it simply changes what color is stored in that variable, so I can do it with just a single time. Would a String be the best for this, and just set the BackColor to that String? Thanks for any help.
