Class SoTimerQueueSensor

  • Direct Known Subclasses:
    SoAlarmSensor, SoTimerSensor

    public class SoTimerQueueSensor
    extends SoSensor
    Abstract base class for sensors dependent on time. Timer queue sensors are sensors that trigger themselves at specific times. The timer queue is normally processed as part of a program's main loop when the program is not busy doing something else. Note that processing the timer queue is not asynchronous - the program must re-enter its main loop for timers to be triggered. When the timer queue is processed, all timers scheduled to go off at or before the current time are triggered once, in order from earliest to latest.
