How to create periodic Timers in iX Developer

Create a ScriptModule. Right click below the functions section and select "Add ScriptModule".

Right click on the Script Module and Rename it to "TimerScript".

The Script Module will default with the following code.

Code: Select all

namespace Neo.ApplicationFramework.Generated
{
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System;
    using System.Drawing;
    using Neo.ApplicationFramework.Tools;
    using Neo.ApplicationFramework.Common.Graphics.Logic;
    using Neo.ApplicationFramework.Controls;
    using Neo.ApplicationFramework.Interfaces;    
    
    public partial class TimerScript
    {

    }
}
In the code below, I have edited the TimerScript class to create and initialize two System.Windows.Form.Timer class instances. I have also created two functions "Stop()" and "Start()" that can be used to turn the timers on or off. The timers are configured to 1000 and 250 milliseconds.

Code: Select all

public partial class TimerScript
	{
		private static Timer timer1 = null;
		private static Timer timer2 = null;
		
		static TimerScript()
		{
			timer1 = new Timer();
			timer1.Tick += new EventHandler(TimeOut1);
			timer1.Interval = 1000;
			timer1.Enabled = true;			
			
			timer2 = new Timer();
			timer2.Tick += new EventHandler(TimeOut2);
			timer2.Interval = 250;
			timer2.Enabled = true;
		}

		public static void Stop() 
		{
			try {
				timer1.Enabled = false;
				timer2.Enabled = false;
			}
			catch(Exception) {}
		}		
		
		public static void Start()
		{
			try {
				timer1.Enabled = true;
				timer2.Enabled = true;
			}
			catch(Exception) {}
		}
		
		private static void TimeOut1(Object myObject, EventArgs myEventArgs) 
		{			
			Globals.Tags.Tag1.Value = Globals.Tags.Tag1.Value + 1;
		}		
		
		private static void TimeOut2(Object myObject, EventArgs myEventArgs) 
		{			
			Globals.Tags.Tag2.Value = Globals.Tags.Tag2.Value + 1;
		}		
    }
You may call the "Stop()" or "Stop()" functions from actions on screens.
