WM 22: Step through file with pause
December 01, 2018 07:10PM
Hi All,

I am stepping through a query which includes a field with milliseconds, and want to pause for the duration while an image is displayed.

WHILE NOT HOut(QRY_step_through)
	
// Code here to make image visible

 // WHAT TO PUT HERE TO PAUSE?
// This works in Windows test mode but not android - nothing is shown until the last record

tduration is currency = QRY_step_through.duration_ms/10
ThreadPause(tduration)

HReadNext(QRY_step_through)

END

Thanks for any help

Pete

Hi Pete,

tduration should be of type integer (just a quess, did not try it)

Hi Pete,

afaik that is indeed how Android (or may it be WM) works. The GUI is refreshed when exiting the procedure, You could try to
- move the image display itself to a second procedure, called from within your loop. Maybe even an internal procedure will work. Jus ta guess
- or use threads to separate the query-loop from the GUI actions
