Questionusing timer to switch an alert on and off Pin

Hello,

VS 2008

I have the following code in my timer control

<br />
private void tmrVibrate_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)<br />
        {<br />
            vibrateAlert = new Led();<br />
            vibrateAlert.SetLedStatus(1, Led.LedState.On);<br />
            Debug.WriteLine("Vibrating");<br />
            Thread.Sleep(1000);<br />
            vibrateAlert.SetLedStatus(1, Led.LedState.Off);<br />
        }<br />

I have 2 buttons start and stop. Start will enable the timer and stop will disable the timer.

The problem was that the PDA would continuely vibrate. So I put it in the timer event and set the interval for 2 seconds. Then in the timer event I sleep for 1 second. This will vibrate it for 1 second then switch it off and do this every 2 seconds.

The problem now is, that the UI will freeze during the pause of 1 second.

Is there a better way to do this?

Many thanks for any advice,
