18// TTimer //
19// //
20// Handles synchronous and a-synchronous timer events. You can use //
21// this class in one of the following ways: //
22// - Sub-class TTimer and override the Notify() method. //
23// - Re-implement the TObject::HandleTimer() method in your class //
24// and pass a pointer to this object to timer, see the SetObject() //
25// method. //
26// - Pass an interpreter command to timer, see SetCommand() method. //
27// - Create a TTimer, connect its Timeout() signal to the //
28// appropriate methods. Then when the time is up it will emit a //
29// Timeout() signal and call connected slots. //
30// //
31// Minimum timeout interval is defined in TSystem::ESysConstants as //
32// kItimerResolution (currently 10 ms). //
33// //
34// Signal/slots example: //
35// TTimer *timer = new TTimer(); //
36// timer->Connect("Timeout()", "myObjectClassName", //
37// myObject, "TimerDone()"); //
38// timer->Start(2000, kTRUE); // 2 seconds single-shot //
39// //
40// // Timeout signal is emitted repeadetly with minimum timeout //
41// // timer->Start(0, kFALSE); //
42// //
