    Is there a way to call a sub with a timer, (in this case it would change the value of a slider to zero one value at a time) and then wait until this is finished and then continue?  I have the subs ready and they work however I can’t figure out how to use the timer so that it will pause while the timer is running.  In this way I could create an animation of all the sliders moving to zero one at a time.

    I thought about running the sub with the timer then doing a until loop and then checking the value of the slider but it this ends up hanging.  What I really need is a way to have the main sub wait until the called sub is finished, or even when the timer stops.  In that way I can set the child sub to stop the timer when I get to zero.

    I am aware I could just to a loop but I don’t get the animated effect.

    There is a Timer class and there is a ComponentAnimator class. The first is a general timer the second is designed to move/resize/fade components on the panel. There is an example of both i think in the Panels folder of the Ctrlr installation. The rendering demo in the Panels section on top uses Timers. Check them out.
