Operating Systems Supported
Requires Windows NT 3.1 or later; Requires Windows 95 or later

Library

Parameter Information
dwMilliseconds
Specifies the time, in milliseconds, for which to suspend execution. A value of zero causes the thread to relinquish the remainder of its time slice to any other thread of equal priority that is ready to run. If there are no other threads of equal priority ready to run, the function returns immediately, and the thread continues execution. A value of INFINITE causes an infinite delay.
