QuestionSystem.Threading.Thread.Sleep() not working Pin
aei_totten8-Apr-08 4:00

Hey I am trying to use System.Threading.Thread.Sleep() and I am not getting expected results.
I am trying to use it as a delay

turn RTS on<br />
System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(5);<br />
turn RTS off


I have an o-scope hooked to the RTS line and I would expect that the RTS should go on and off anytime over 5 milliseconds (due to windows timing issues), but I would not expect to see it take anytime less than 5 milliseconds.

However, I am seeing results anywhere from just under 1 millisecond up to 20 milliseconds. Again if it was just 4 milliseconds (because of the resolution, i thought maybe we could see something as long as it was greater than 4) to whatever, I would be fine with that, but it is returning in less than 4 milliseconds down to one millisecond even!

Just for giggles I set up this

<br />
Using System.Diagnostics;<br />
Using System.Threading;<br />
<br />
long startTime,finishTime,diff;<br />
float elapsed;<br />
<br />
for (int x = 1; x <=10 ; x++)<br />
{<br />
   startTime = Stopwatch.GetTimeStamp();<br />
   Thread.Sleep(x);<br />
   finishTime = Stopwatch.GetTimeStamp();<br />
   diff = finishTime - startTime; <br />
   elapsed = diff / 10000;    <br />
   Console.Write(x + " > " + elapsed + "ms > " + diff);<br />
}


And am seeing very similar (and stragne) results.

Confused | :confused:
Is this just a bug in the the sleep function or what? Is there another function that I can call instead? (Don't even think about writing that I should be polling---don't get me started--, I am working in an environment where milliseconds difference are noticable, polling would be such a time killer)

Thanks
Brandy
