depending on what you are trying to do, there are two main options:

1. Causing the Code to completly halt
can be done by using the Sleep method (i saw you got a got overview of it)
or by looping like you did
BUT - add a DoEvents() call inside the loop, this will allow the window to redraw

this approach of halting is not very safe to begin with, especially in VB6 that runs
EVERYTHING on a single thread.

you might want to try these two approachs:
2. Timer based halt.
Create a timer object, and set it to start timing you in the 'Wait' method
handle the timer's "Timer" event, in the hanlding sub
a. disable the timer
b. call a method to continue the operation

there are additional ways to achieve this, but i think this will get you going
