make a check box button
on callMyStackScriptTimer waitSecs
if waitSecs is empty then put 10 into waitSecs
if the hilight of btn "timerStatus" is true then
-- do these commands
send "callMyStackScriptTimer" in waitSecs seconds
--now the script can be called by different routines
--setting the hilight of the check box will stop any 'send in' calls
--obviously, if your mouseup turns off the check box, the loop will
skip the tasks
This is just one way of accomplishing the task.
