    Smile Launching the application at specific time

    Hi
    I want my application to take the update from internet at specified time say 3:00 am. I also don't want my application to run in background because it consumes a lot of memory. So I think I will write seperate console application which will run in background and it will launch my main application. But how will I get the event of it at specified time.
    I am using S60 3rd fp2.
    I am very new in symbian, so please suggest me on this post.
    Thanks

    Re: Launching the application at specific time

    Welcome to the Forum..

    If u r writing the console application..

    have a look at
    Code:
     RTimer::At(TRequestStatus,Mention your time);
    Create an active object..At that time you will get the RunL() called where you can do ur stuff...

    Study abt active objects implementation and their working..This wil help u a lot.

    Basically with symbian if you take the advice from the previous answer, the process will be sleeping nicely in the background, and will not consume too much memory nor power really.
