Whats the best way - console to communicate and act synchronously?

Hello all.

I have a main app that on occassion needs to have an object send an email, SMS or other update to one or more addresses. My question is, if I want synchronous communication, so that the main app is not waiting for the other app to finish, how is that accomplished? I understand that normally an IPC Socket is used, but when the main sends a command via the IPC Socket does it sit as a variable and use a timer to execute, or does it just execute? It seems to me that a timer is necessary so the communication loop is completed thereby allowing the synchronous communication to exist. Am I correct?

Alternatively, is it better for the other app to periodically read a database or other means, to check for a flag/data to send xyz info in abc manner?

Thoughts, opinions and guidance are appreciated!
Thank you,

Actually what you’re describing is Asynchronous communication.

What you do is set the Mode to 1 and implement the events of the Shell class.

Whooops… My bad Greg!

Where is it that you set Mode = 1? Is there a sample I should review?
Thank you for your response!


Either in the inspector or in code.
