Timer - Time window for C++

Markus Freitag 3,786 Reputation points

I am not so familiar with C++.
What do I need?

void CustomStandard::ProccessA(void)  
	StartTimer(1, 1000);  
	// TimerID, Timout in ms  
	Call RequestProccessA();  
// Event  
void CustomStandard::ReceivedProcessA(string ret)  
	// TimerID, Timout in ms  
	// Analyse the ret string  
// CallBack   
void CustomStandard::OnTimer(int id)  
      case 1:   
	     KillTimer(1) // Is needed or do it automatically?  

How can I achieve this?
Which timer is suitable for this?

I need to start an action and in a certain time window a response must come back.

Thanks for tips.

    Hi, @Markus Freitag

    Set timer example: SetTimer(1, 1000,NULL);
    You can put KillTimer in OnTimer event.
