Timers, while not widgets strictly speaking, are defined in the same way as widgets. They allow you to define a recurring timed event. Timers may be associated with pages or the system object - the difference being that timers associated with pages are only able to be running when that page is visible.
Timers have the following attributes/properties:
|name||The name of the timer||No||_timernn||Read-only|
|interval||Number of milliseconds between each OnTimer event||Yes||N/A||Yes|
|enabled||Whether the timer is running or not||No||false||Yes|
The following methods are supported by timers:
|start()||Start the timer. Equivalent to setting the enabled property to true.|
|stop()||Stop the timer. Equivalent to setting the enabled property to false.|
