The timerexists( function checks to see whether a timer exists.
This function has one parameter:
timer – name of the timer to check.
- Automatic Field Code -- running a short program when data is entered into a field.
- changetimer -- modifies a repeating task that will be performed periodically when Panorama is not otherwise busy.
- endnoshow -- resumes the output of text and graphics after it has been disabled with the noshow statement.
- executeasap -- executes the specified code at the first possible opportunity, non-atomically.
- Implicitly Triggered Procedures -- Procedures that are triggered automatically when the user performs some normal Panorama action are said to be "implicitly triggered."
- info("computername") -- returns the name of the computer (as set up in the System Preferences Sharing panel).
- info("noshow") -- returns true if noshow is currently turned on, false if it is not.
- info("runningatomic") -- returns true if the current procedure is running as a "atomic" procedure.
- info("timerinfo") -- returns a dictionary that contains all of the properties of the currently running timer.
- info("timers") -- returns a carriage return separated list of all active timers.
- noshow -- temporarily disables the output of text and graphics.
- resumeaftertask -- resumes after a waitfortask statement.
- setwaitinglocal -- assigns a value to a local variable in the parent procedure of an asynchronous task, allowing the asynchronouse code to pass a value back to the code that spawned it.
- starttimer -- sets up and starts a repeating task that will be performed periodically when Panorama is not otherwise busy.
- stoptimer -- stops and deletes a timer that was set up with the StartTimer statement.
- Timer Workshop -- provides a tool for monitoring timers and testing timer configurations.
- timerinfo( -- returns a dictionary that contains all of the properties of a timer.
- Timers -- executing recurring periodic background code at fixed intervals.
- Understanding the Run Loop -- explanation of how Panorama code interacts with the run loop to respond to mouse clicks, keyboard presses, display updates and other events that require attention.
- wait -- pauses the program for a specified period of time.
- waitfortask -- temporarily pauses a procedure until the specified task is complete.
