Hi,

I had an idea for an app but need to shed some light on a few questions.

In order to fire an event or app in a speciffic time, the app must be running...right?

How to implement a run on startup, but on background, not showing any form?

I tried a simple example and got this error:

hrd.runappattime("iazip.exe",t)
error description:
cannot set notification handler

Does this mean that my device doesnt support runappattime event?

Im thinking about my next project...
Something like a "bill reminder"...That would run in background and at given times would pop-up and alert the user...and then go background again...
In v4 an app that didn't show a form by the end of the app_start sub would be ended, is this true in v5?This make my idea almost impossible to achieve...Any workaround?

Qtek 9000 and RunAppAtEvent problem

Hi, when I try

hw.RunAppAtTime(AppPath & "\program.exe", TimeAdd(Now,0,0,20))

everything is ok, but when I try this...

hw.RunAppAtEvent(AppPath & "\program.exe", hw.evOnACPower)

nothing happens, when I connect charger. Does it mean, that in Qtek 9000 is not this feature supported?

Ok. And is here some way, how to fix it? In dzHw.dll, GetACLineStatus works good for me, so I think, that this is possible, right?

Good idea :)
With Check Notification, I found, that this event is stored successufully (Notify Type: CNT_EVENT, Event Type:ON_AC_POWER, Argument: AppRunAtAcPowerOn).
Does it mean, that my pda ignores it?
(For example - event evWakeup works good)
