 Dear Kelly,
I also have this same problem of Jim.
I'm trying to display a timer/counter on a remote form using v10.1.If the form is clicked on, then the timer is reset.
Do I display the timer in an entry field or in a timer control?
Which superclass is being set to the object class?

 Hi Jim,

Create an Object class and set the superclass to the Timer external object.  Instantiate the object, assign the $useseconds and $timervalue properties, then call the $starttimer method to get it running.

Override the $timer method and put your action code there - that method will be called when the timer fires.

Look at this post for steps to use the Net Wizard to create some example email methods.


Also, via the Samples pane of the Hub in the Browser, you can look at the IMAP and POP3 OW3 worker object examples.
