    If I define a Timer event on a dialog, when type of information can I get from the msg container that I get in Timer([BaseContainer] msg); ?

          }  
      }  
    

    ...of course that's a brute-force approach - hopefully support can give you a better answer.

    Thank you Giblet.
    That will tell me what type of information is there. But it will not tell me what the information is about :-(
    Why isn't the msg from the Timer documented?

    The msg container for GeDialog::Timer() is empty.

    I assume Maxon added this parameter for possible extensions that might require this argument or information to be passed via a Container.
