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); ?

I don't do much COFFEE, so I'm not sure if you could do something similar to this or not...

  
  LONG id, i=0;

          case DA_LONG:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_LONG");                break;  
          case DA_REAL:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_REAL");                break;  
          case DA_TIME:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_TIME");                break;  
          case DA_VECTOR:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_VECTOR");            break;  
          case DA_MATRIX:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_MATRIX");            break;  
          case DA_LLONG:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_LLONG");                break;  
          case DA_BYTEARRAY:        GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_BYTEARRAY");            break;  
          case DA_STRING:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_STRING ("+data.GetString()+")");                    break;  
          case DA_FILENAME:        GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_FILENAME ("+data.GetFilename().GetString()+")");    break;  
          case DA_CONTAINER:        GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_CONTAINER");            break;  
          case DA_ALIASLINK:        GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_ALIASLINK");            break;  
          case DA_MARKER:            GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_MARKER");            break;  
          case DA_MISSINGPLUG:    GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_MISSINGPLUG");        break;  
          case DA_CUSTOMDATATYPE:    GePrint("id: "+LongToString(id)+" - DA_CUSTOMDATATYPE");    break;  
      }  
  }  

...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?

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