Repeat a nasal script?

Postby 91cob » Wed Sep 26, 2018 3:24 pm

Hi, i've written a nasal script, and everything works well now, when its running in the Nasal-Console. But now I want to make it run in the background, as a loop. It has to be repeated over and over again while FG is running. How can I do this?

There are several ways you can do this. Search the wiki for "nasal loops" and it will give you a section on Listeners. That would be one method. The other is to call a function that loops itself with a timer. See "timers" in wiki.

Something like[1];

Code: Select all
var some_loop = func {

# your code goes here.

some_loop_Timer = maketimer(0.25, mt_loop_example);
some_loop_Timer.simulatedTime = 1; # use simulated time, as maketimer defaults to using wallclock time and continues during pause.
