Hi,
I am looking to bulid a 'timer' or reminder software that sits in the system tray and when the 'times comes' activates a noise and displays some text , opens a link or something along those lines.

Any suggestions on what to use i.e Vb script or does anyone know of a decent plugin for such an application.

Thanks in advance

Janner

Hi Janner,

Wellcome to NeoBook.

You do not need plugins to do that. NeoBook has all the components required to create powerful applications.

One idea could be to use a timer object, set a timer interval to let´s say 10 seconds and check if the current time is the time you are looking for... and do the desired actions.

Maybe you can tie this idea to a NeoBookDB database so you can have N events easily.

Check the timer object documentation, start your code and post your problems here. This forum counts with professional and skilled NeoBookers that will help you.

Good luck!
