Example
// Attendre 1s
Wait(100, waitRedraw)
Syntax
Wait(<Timeout> [, <Type>])
<Timeout>: Integer
Time to wait in hundredths of a second.
  • The function has no effect if a negative value is used.
  • If this parameter is set to 0, the function processes all the pending events and takes control immediately.
Regardless of the parameter value, the optional processes of controls are always run. Remark: This parameter can correspond to:
  • an integer corresponding to the number of hundredths of a second,
  • a Duration variable,
  • Versions 23 and later
    the direct indication of the duration ('1s' or '10cs' for example).
    New in version 23
    the direct indication of the duration ('1s' or '10cs' for example).
    the direct indication of the duration ('1s' or '10cs' for example).
<Type>: Optional constant
Type of event that can be run during the wait:
waitRedraw

waitNothingNo event can be run.
waitMouseAndKeyboardThe windows and the controls can be redrawn.
The timers can be run.
The mouse actions (click on controls for example) or the keyboard events can be run.
Remark: This constant is equivalent to Multitask used with a negative value.
waitTimerThe windows and the controls can be redrawn.
The timers can be run.
Remark: This constant is equivalent to Multitask used with a positive value.
Remarks

Stop

The stop only affects the current thread. The other threads continue to run normally.

Tips/Notes

  • It is advisable to use the ThreadPause or ServiceWait function instead of the Multitask or Wait functions when multiple threads are used (including the application's main the thread) if the timer does not need to process user actions.
  • Wait prevents the process from ending as long as the requested temporization is not completed. We advise you not to use a long temporization but to perform several short temporizations in a loop. For example, you can replace:
    Wait(10000, waitMouseAndKeyboard)

    by:
    LOOP (100)
    Wait(100, waitMouseAndKeyboard)
    END
  • In a Service application, Wait must be replaced by ServiceWait.
