Question How to schedule different Task with the same timer

Please Login to Remove!

I have a brief question here, I tried to assign multipleTimerTasks to a single timer, Basically what I was doing is I was going to assign 2TimerTasks in two different classes to a single Timer, but It just crashed the application after I did that. I was wondering if I am allowed to do that? and how? Thanks a lot!!

Default How to schedule different Task with the same timer

First check if timer is not null.. that means one task is already assigned.

While assigning firsttask keep track of the time (by keeping one global static variable which can be used all over the application in any class).

Then when you to assign third task compare the time with this one and then assign minimum to timer.

when this first task start then assign next task to the timer..

if you want to do this for more than 2 tasks.. keep the task list in persisatant storage or RMS. then after finishing one read the storage and assign the task to timer. after starting that task remove it from the storage.

this will work.. I have done same in my application.
