Overview

This code snippet shows how to create a condition-based schedule using the class RScheduler. One condition-based schedule can contain one or more TTaskSchedulerCondition schedule entries. An entry contains criteria based on the Publish and Subscribe variable and when this variable has a certain value, the Task Scheduler server launches scheduled tasks. The user can also give a default runtime for the tasks to run regardless of the condition variable values.

In this example, a condition-based schedule with one task is created. After that, the Symbian Publish and Subscribe mechanism is used to trigger and execute the scheduled task.

This snippet can be self-signed.

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY             schsvr.lib

Preconditions

ExampleTaskHandler.exe must be created before this code snippet can be executed. See CS000986 - Creating and registering a task handler with RScheduler

Postconditions

The condition-based schedule with one example task has been created and the task execution is triggered using the Publish and Subscribe mechanism.
