Creating A Timer (In Background)

Post by Googie85 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 8:35 am

Hi Guys!!

I am wondering if it is possible to have a timer that will execute code after 30 seconds. Using "wait for 30 seconds with messages" doesn't have the desired effect. Could I create a loop with the "wait" command and have it run in another card? I hope I have explained myself properly.

Many Thanks,

Hi Googie,
You may use "send in time" message.
Have a look to "send" in LC dictionary
Best regards
