    I want to wait for an event whch can be raised both by an user's choice (he should press an one of two buttons, "OK" or "NO") or by a timer tick event (time out).

    Is there a way to do it without needing to use a global variable?

    I didn't study the code yet, but what about adding an option (e.g. Autocancel ) to a standard XUI Dialog where a timer closes it with the "dismiss" result (or a default one)?

    First of all, thank you for your help, U.

    A dialog or a "normal layout" is the same thing; I could do as you wrote but then I would not be able to know if the dialog was closed by the timeout or by the user action (that's why I asked ...

    I see..
    Well, the "dismissed" return value could be a new one (in addition to POSITIVE, NEGATIVE..) so in that case you'll know that it was the timer to close the dialog.
    As said, I didn't yet study the new XUI Dialogs so I can't be of further help on the specific subject, but you got the idea.

    Your code is wrong. You cannot wait for a sub that doesn't return a ResumableSub.

    You should do something like this:
    Sub AppStart (Form1 As Form, Args() As String)
       MainForm = Form1
    "layMain"'Load the layout file.
    Wait For TaskCompleted(Result As String)
       lblAnswer.Text = Result
    End Sub

    Sub Chosen_Click
       tmr.Enabled = 
    Dim btnSender As Button = Sender
    Dim Answer As String = btnSender.Tag
    End Sub

    Private Sub RaiseEvent(Answer As String)
    "TaskCompleted", Answer)
    End Sub

    Private Sub tmr_Tick
       mCounter = mCounter + 
       lblCount.Text = mCounter
    If mCounter = 5 Then
           tmr.Enabled = 
    "Time out")
    End If
    End Sub
    I would have used B4XDialog instead.

    I know, that's why I started the question :D

    ... like you did, @LucaMs " (since you, Erel, just did it in your code above).

    It's a... different situation; I need to do it that way.

    Many thanks, Erel, your code is exactly what I needed.
