#63211 None of my posts have shown up yet, so I can't just fix them.

Anyway, looking more closely at the new help file, I see that in the example, timer 0 was used rather than timercb 0.
Code: Select allExample:

Print “timer example”

Timercb 1000, [test]



If io(pi,d3) = 0 then

   Timer 0

   serialPrintln “timer has been disabled”


   serialPrintln “Button connected to d3 (gpio 0) is high”



If that was the actual code used to test the timer, it gave a false sense of correctness, as timer 0 does not stop the timer set up with timercb, and "timercb 0" was not tested.

#63317 I just fixed the docs.

It should have been timercb 0 to cancel the timer from running.

#63336 okay, but it still doesn't work for me.
I'm using 3.0 alpha 67, the lastest one I found.

try this program
Code: Select allmemclear
button "Quit",[endprog]
timercb 1000,[endtest]  'run for a second
timercb 0

wprint "<br>timer triggered"


I get the error-
Error at line 5: timercb line not found!

#63344 Ok.

I just published a new build fixing this issue.

It seems that the timercb 0 condition qwas not caught by the interpreter and it was attempting to find the mine number of the branch.

This has now been fixed.
