    Timer Not Working

    geoff_olding

      Hi

       

      I am trying to call a function from a timer using the following code:

       

      var mTimer;
      function testTimer()
      {
      mTimer = app.setInterval( "runTimer()", 1000 );
      }

       

      function runTimer()
      {
      app.clearInterval(mTimer);
      app.alert("timer run");
      }

      The function runTimer() simply doesn't run.

      The only way I can get the timer to work is with a line like this:

       

      mTimer = app.setInterval( "app.alert('test')", 1000 );

      However, calling a function doesn't work.  The code is in a global module.  It doesn't work with anything I try, such as:

       

      mTimer = app.setInterval( "Global.runTimer()", 1000 );

      I am using a Dynamic XML form in Designer 9 (trial version).

       

      Many thanks
