This unit is a Processor unit.
A Gate Delayer is a unit that sets an initial delay, queuing input events for a set amount of time before sending them to the out port. After the delay has been applied once, the unit will continue to fire events to the out port.
The timer is initiated when the flow diagram starts. Inbound events enter through the in port and are held in a queue until the delay has elapsed. When the delay period ends, the events are released to the out port. All inbound events received after the initial delay are sent directly to the out port.
After dragging this unit into the Flow canvas, double-click it to access its configuration options. The following table describes the configuration options of this unit:
|General||Name||Enter a name for the unit. It must start with a letter, and cannot contain spaces. Only letters, numbers, and underscores are allowed.|
|Delay||The initial delay you wish to apply (in milliseconds). This will apply the same initial delay to all input events. To apply delays to individual events, use the Delayer unit.|
|in||All events enter through this port.|
|out||All events are output, unchanged, through this port after the delay time.|
