Scheduling tasks
Home Documentation Smile Smile's objects Scheduling tasks  
Smile provides three mechanisms for scheduling tasks:
  • smilepause: pauses a script without hanging the application,
  • idle: used to have an object perform a background task. Smile sends periodically the idle event to those objects (to their scripts, actually) whose want idle property was set to true,
  • notify: the mechanism to send a signed message to another object, immediately or after a given delay has elapsed.
