Image Pause

Hi STeven,

I'm working on an inspection program that receives a trigger over a serial port, performs evaluation, display a "pass fail" indication, and sends a pass fail variable back over the serial port. Ideally for the right feel for the operator the "pass fail" screen would pause for a couple seconds.

I've tried using the timer module without success and I also tried using sleep() in a vbscript module but that seemed to pause the image on the frame before the evaluation which is strange considering where it is in the pipeline.

Any help would be appreciated.

I figured out how to accomplish my goal.

Basically at the end of the inspection I use the write clipboard module.
Then a vbscript that creates a new timed variable "pause" like so;

SetVariable "pause", 1
SetTimedVariable "pause", 0, 2000

Then outside of the inspection statement, a new if statement module, if pause =1
read clipboard module
