Timer Question


I have a program that I want to run for 10 minutes. In those 10 minutes I want it to check for the time. For the first 3 minutes I want it to run one function. After the 3 minutes expires I want it to start another function for 4 minutes. When that expires I want it to run another function for the remaining 3 minutes.

Do I use a starttimer and have the starttimer equal something and put the 3 functions in a loop so it keeps checking the time?

Im looking for a good way to write this.



def function1():


//end of function 1

def function2():


//end of function 2

def function3():


//end of function 3

Here is an example that uses the viztask module to control the timing of the 3 different functions:
import viz
import vizact
import viztask

def func1():
def func2():
def func3():

def MainTask():
	#Run func1 for 3 minutes
	timer = vizact.ontimer(0,func1)
	yield viztask.waitTime(180)
	#Run func2 for 4 minutes
	timer = vizact.ontimer(0,func2)
	yield viztask.waitTime(240)
	#Run func3 for 3 minutes
	timer = vizact.ontimer(0,func3)
	yield viztask.waitTime(180)
	#Quit script
viztask.schedule( MainTask() )

Ok thanks for that... If I wanted to do it via pressing keys and not a timer how would I do that. I got it to work but I have trouble after I go on to the next function... I can never go backwards.


I press 'a' to initiate def func1():

I then press 's' to iniatiate def func2():

If I press 'a' again I get an error. I assume I need a ontimer or something but I have trouble trying to figure that out.

Any insight would be much appreciated

If you just want to call functions based on keypresses use something like

vizact.onkeydown('a', func1)
vizact.onkeydown('s', func2)
