I am having a difficult time getting one or more timers to use one or more timertasks. I need to start multiple tasks and depending on the situtation restart one or more of the tasks. However, when I attempt to do this it seems as though the task never restarts or has been killed for some reason? I use the cancel() method to stop the task and then create a new task and schedule it on a existing timer, is this correct? Does anyone have an example of multiple timers and multiple timertasks being used where they are started, stopped, and restarted? If not what is a alternative beside managing time myself? Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Thank You,
