View list of data type meanings


Returns an array of all the named timers currently defined. You can then use GetTimer or GetTimerInfo for more details about each one.

Note - from version 3.40 onwards GetTimerList returns all timers, even unlabelled ones. The unlabelled timers will have assigned an "internal" label (like "*timer42") that can be used in GetTimerInfo, and similar routines.

VBscript example
dim timerList

timerList = world.GetTimerList

If Not IsEmpty (timerList) then

   For Each t In timerList
     world.Note t 

End If
Jscript example
timerlist = new VBArray(world.GetTimerList()).toArray();

if (timerlist)  // if not empty
 for (i = 0; i < timerlist.length; i++)
   world.note(timerlist [i]);
PerlScript example
foreach $item (Win32::OLE::in ($world->GetTimerList))
Python example
timerlist = world.GetTimerList
if (timerlist):
  for t in timerlist : world.Note (t)
Lua example
tl = GetTimerList ()
if tl then
  for k, v in ipairs (tl) do 
    Note (v) 
  end  -- for
end -- if we have any timers
Lua notes
Lua returns nil where applicable instead of an "empty variant".
Returns If there are no timers (with names) then the return value is empty. Use "IsEmpty" to test for this possibility.

Otherwise, it returns a variant array containing the names of all the timers. Use "ubound" to find the number of timers in the list.
