a great bitesize tutorial on pendingMessages.
> Set up a loop like this:
> on checkCaps
> if the capsLockKey = "down" then put
> "Capslock ON"
> else put "Capslock OFF"
> if the pendingMessages contains "checkCaps"
> is false then
> send checkCaps to me in 10 ticks
> end if
> end checkCaps
> What I do is alter the repeat time (set to 10
> ticks or 1/6th of a
> second above) until it is just fast enough.
> That way you aren't taking
> more of the processor time that you need.
> Don't forget to have a way to cancel the
> message when quitting or when
> it is no longer needed.
> Here is my general message cancel handler:
> on cancelMessage pMsg
> put the pendingMessages into tList
> repeat for each line L in tList
> if item 3 of L contains pMsg then
> cancel item 1 of L
> end repeat
> end cancelMessage
