    timer ext plugin now RRsched

    as suggested by blue , who will monitor this thread and is willing (time allowing) to make changes where needed and are possiable to add.

    thread rename , due to the change of the plugin it is no longer just a
    timerexec, it is now a calender of sorts , with the ability to set times and different cmds to anything in your exectbl.ini

    Current coding format

    you can use this <DATE>;<TIME>;<OCCURANCE>;"<ANY NUMBER OF CMDS, SEP BY "#" >";<Name of skin ( needed/wanted? ) >

    Example would be like this:

    09/08/08;13:25;O;"SENDMGS;MYAPP;HELLO||AUDIO#DVD#VIDEO"; DFX 4.0

    This makes:

    Date = 09/08/08
    Time = 1:25 AM
    Occ = Once
    First Cmd = "SENDMGS;MYAPP;HELLO||AUDIO"
    Second Cmd = "DVD"
    Third Cmd = "Video"

    If no skin name, will trigger the cmds on time set for all skins
    adding the skin name to the end of the line will make the cmds on time set
    only work in that skin. Indicators added to the days to indicate a an event has been inputted on that day.

    so far achieved,

    Month calendar days display if event(s) for that day.
    Clicking on an evented day brings up a listing of days events
    Clicking on the month at the top of calendar brings up a listing of all events for that month with -/+ months on that scn to nav around.
    can now set time for each event via custon numosk or hours and minutes buttons .
    you can now also set when you want your event to be triggered by selecting day of the week (mon.tues,wed,thur so on), yearly,monthly,so on.
    adding events or editing not implement as of yet.

    plugin once fully released, to set times for theme changes.
    set an alarm for appointments (in chucks case TV shows lol). Additional coding will be needed to run some ideas , but this plugin has opened up the possabilitys for skinners and users alike,

    latest beta test from this post Here


    Suggestions made:

    Genric timer
    execute exectbl cmds
    Time checking on start of Road Runner
    support for Hibination and standby
    Settings saved to plugins own ini
    Multiple cmds can be set for each time


    will update as i find out more.

    why not make it a generic timer ... that can read one or one hundred events stored in an INI file and then launch an EXECTBL cmd at each event ...

    The problem with using this TimeExec.dll for day night setting is if you open RR in between these times set it will not trigger your commands.

    You would have to do some fancy RR coding in the ExecTBL.ini file to get it to work for day/night.

    I use it for alarm clock to play sounds, go to player and play a station, play a preset in audio, play TV, record mic or record a player. Also a hourly chime and speak hourly weather and more.

    ...with the ability to back check times to see if any of user set events have occurred (i.e. coming out of hibernation, powering up, etc.)

    I don't know, how many events are there? What do you want it to do? I have only 2 events to trigger, this is day and night switching. For that I wrote the auto background changer. It changes the skins background and gamma setting sunrise and sunset times or custom times set in skin.ini. No matter when you start RR or come out of hibernation/standby, it will trigger the event.

    this is 1 reason yes , i do like ai but a dll is mch better , if the timer is updated to todays standards then all these plugins that may need a timer feature like reminders don't have to have a timer built in them and you can set triggers off for others events,

    there has to many reason on why update this plugin i just feel it dose need updating the way some of these skins are going , its another feature which can be used.
