Hi,

I'm new to MaxScript. How can I said my Script that it should execute themselve every second?

I don't know under which word I should search in the MaxScript Help.

Thanks in advance

Two ways:

*Look for Timer User Interface Control in the Help. It is a special type of UI element that does not display anything in the rollout, but can "tick" as often as you want.

*If you have Max 9 or higher, you can also use a DotNet Timer Control:

This one does not require a rollout. I tend to use it for polling (non-event driven) actions.

Thank you.

I have Max 9 and your example spams my Listener full - but it works!

That's why I provided the line

theTimer.stop() --use this method to stop the Timer.

to stor the spamming :)
