WML Timer - WML

What is Timer in WML?

Last few chapters discussed about how events are triggered by the users and how do we handle them using event handlers.

Incase if anything happens without the user explicitly having to activate a control. Then WML provides you ontimer event to handle this.

The ontimer event is happened when a card's timer counts down from one to zero, it doesn't occur if the timer is initialized to a timeout of zero.

You can bind a task to this event with the <onevent> element. Here is the syntax:

Here, a task could be <go>, <prev> or <refresh>.

WML <timer> Element:

A timer is defined inside a WML card with the <timer> element. It should follow the <onevent> events if they are present. (If there are no <onevent> elements, the <timer> must be the first element inside the <card>.) No more than one <timer> may be present in a card.

The <timer> element supports the following attributes:

Attribute Value Description
name text Sets a name for the element.
value number Specifies the timer after which timer will be expired. Timeouts are specified in units of a tenth of a second.
class class_data Sets a class name for the element.
id element ID A unique ID for the element.

Let’s see the example showing usage of <timer> element.
