Send in time will do it. You can also get the message ID to cancel the
pending message.

Example(not tested)
Start up the timers(messages) in the main startup code:

Send "testit to me in 1 minute
Send "testitlong to me in 10 minutes

Then use 2 handlers to receive the messages.

On testit
 If some condition is true then do something
 Send "testit to me in 1 minutes
End on testit

On testitlong
 If some condition is true then do something
 Send "testitlong to me in 10 minutes
End on testitlong

Subject: Running Processes in the background

Hello,

Are there any examples of how to run a process in the background in an
application?

I need to have two timer processes run when the user is using the
application.

The processes need to check for certain trigger values every

- 1 minute

- 10 minutes

If the trigger value(s) exist then the application takes the user to a
different part in the application.

Everything I have read is that LC is not multithreaded but there is a way to
generate these as loops that can check for these values?

Any direction or examples are appreciated.

regards,

Glen
