ItoO Tasks is a specially built extension (completely different from the old one) that makes such Environment that it would be possible to allow things like Procedures/Variables to be accessed when the App is In Background.
Here are some of the blocks, blocks that arent mentioned are intended for Test only purpose.
Initializes the service that would run after @latency.
Name is the (main) procedure name that will be called.
Of “runWhileActive”, if set to true, service executes even when the App is Active.
When called, ends the service, this needs to be used inside the service.
Registers the event name like
Button1.Click and the @doCall is the procedure name with the arguments that will be called.
- Note that, before you use any component here, any of the block of the extension must be called first.
Cancels the service.
Block for periodic jobs, see release 1.2 here.
From this block, you will be able to call a procedure by name, same as initialize block but when the device gets switched on/phone restarted.
A block to remove the boot system set (resets it).
Returns true if the app was/is active when the service was started.
If set to true, the extension will use Alarm Manager API which is more accurate than the default API. This block is for Periodic tasks (InitializePeriodic block).
Use this block when Use Alarm API block property is set to true. This block is to specify the first trigger (in ms) of the periodic table.
An example where the procedure Gets the text from the Web componet and shows it as Notification.
