Example: Notes:

You can omit the word Timer in the syntax, because Timer is the default property for the MercuryTimers collection object.

Instead of returning the internal timer object to the MyTimer variable, you can perform MercuryTimer methods directly on the returned object within the same statement, as shown in the following example.

Return Value

A Variant value. A MercuryTimer object.
