Remarks

The timer cannot be edited, deleted or disabled inside the timer handler routine. If you try to do this, the TestComplete engine will freeze or even crash. This happens due to restrictions of the internal Timer procedure. These restrictions cannot be removed.

To ensure the correct behavior of the timer, add the following check inside the timer handler routine:

JavaScript, JScript

if (!TimerRoutine)
{
  timerRoutine = true;
}

Python

if not TimerRoutine:
   TimerRoutine = True

VBScript

If Not TimerRoutine Then
   TimerRoutine = True
End If

DelphiScript

if not TimerRoutine then
begin
  TimerRoutine := True;
end;

C++Script, C#Script

if (!TimerRoutine)
{
  timerRoutine = true;
}

  // Deletes the first object in the Timers collection
  Utils.Timers.Delete(0);
  // ...
}

Python

  # Deletes the first object in the Timers collection
  Utils.Timers.Delete(0)
