A timekeeper; especially, a watch by which small intervals of time can be measured; a kind of stop watch. It is used for timing the speed of horses, machinery, etc.
A kernel resource that triggers an event at a specified interval. The event can occur only once or can be recurring. Timers are one of the event sources for work loops.
a timepiece, especially one used for measuring and signaling the end of time interval
An instrument that registers time intervals without indicating the time of day.
a timepiece that measures a time interval and signals its end
a control which generates events at preset intervals
a device that generates a signal pulse at specified time intervals
a hardware function of the DS that can be set to raise an interrupt at regular intervals
an internal routine that repeatedly measures a specified interval, in milliseconds
an object that can be used in your applications to cause an event to occur on a specified interval
a non-visible control which generate a command code at regular intervals
a software mechanism designed to alert the program and programmer when a specified interval of time has elapsed
a useful thing to have around, not just for animation loops, but for any application that needs to do things at regular intervals or during idle time
An object that executes code either once or periodically, and either at some specified time or after a time interval.
A callback that can be scheduled to be called in a specified interval of time.
Instrument used for registering intervals of time (duration, brief times), without any indication of the time of day.
