USER DRO for Brain timer amount
« on: August 13, 2008, 11:20:12 PM »
Hello Guys,

Is it possible to set a bunch of DRO┬┤s on a custom screen, then have a brain lookup the value of that dro and use it as the amount of time on a timer?

Best Regards

I dont think it will like your wanting it to do. In brains you have to set the timer value IN the brain.

so if you want to do something like that, you could setup sveral timers each wtih a different Timer value, then each timer, the input side will all of them look at the same user dro, from the dro on each line, do a compare that if that number = (your value), then that timer input will go HOT and thus start the timer and when it times out, it will do to what ever output.

Otherwize, you will have to have a If then statement with a VB timer look at the Dro, and bring in the Dro value as a VAR that sets the VB timer amount.

fun times

Thanks Scott,

I understood you very well.

I guess it would be a good addition to future revisions of Brains, being able to set parameters inside brains with userDros!

thanks and Regards
