My coding practice vs. your practice

your program (n): a maze of non-sequiturs littered with clever-clever tricks and irrelevant comments. Compare MY PROGRAM.

my program (n): a gem of algorithmic precision, offering the most sublime balance between compact, efficient coding on the one hand, and fully commented legibility for posterity on the other. Compare YOUR PROGRAM.

How to close a form after a certain timespan

Sometimes it would be really nice if a form closes automatically after a certain timespan. I found it particulary useful in ShopFloorControl, where end-users might not have a mouse to point to close on a form.

On the forms run:

public void run()
str JmgJobId;
// Define variable for timeout
// Created with new int on JmgParameters
int TimeOut = JmgParameters::find().JmgRegistredOnJobPromptTime;

// Check if there is a parm
JmgJobId = element.args().parm();


// Close form after TimeOut
