Want to use DataEase to boil an egg? Timer Event finally introduced! (Ver. 8.5.0.2044)

Download Sample!



Up to 8.5.0.2043 all actions in DataEase had to be triggered by an user.

There was no way that you could trigger events in parallel or trigger/Schedule an event based on time.

True a lot of us has "cheated" by either using WIndows Scheduler or simply by putting a check on MouseOver on form object. Then you would get an event triggered every time someone moved the mouse atleast.

But...

A proper Timer has been a requirement "for ever" and now it is her.

It is basically just a new event on the Form Object (one one each form).



It is being triggered 10 times a second.

The only thing you need to do is to put your own control code on it and off you go.

Can this be used to trigger an Data import at the same time of the day each day of the week without user input?

Yes, as long as DataEase is running and the form with the timer is loaded.

Obviously if you close the form or you close DataEase the timer will stop running.

If you want to make sure it is run, use Windows Scheduler and load DataEase directly with the procedure.
