You could try using a Timer control, just set it to show the label and then disable itself (Otherwise it will keep ticking) I assume you mean VB.NET, but I am only REALLY good with VB6 - so I'll post VB6 code and you can try using it. Sometimes works fine anyway.

So you have a timer, just add the following code to it.

Label1.Visible = True
Timer1.Enabled = False


Label1.Caption = "CAPTION"
Timer1.Enabled = False

Use 2 timers for both labels and change the Interval to your desired MS

How you sleep depends on the VB in question.

Or you could use the Sleep API

Label1.Visible = True
Sleep 1000
Label2.Visible = True

Put the following function declaration in a .bas module and you can call the sleep function form anywhere in your application.

Public Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
