Plugins that have the capability flag
HWPLUG_CAPS_TIMERADAPTER set can replace Hollywood's
inbuilt timer handler with their customized version. Timers are used to control Hollywood functions
SetTimeout(), for instance. If you're writing a display adapter using
an alternative toolkit, it might be good idea to also use the timer facilities of this toolkit
to get a better performance.
Please note that timer adapters are not automatically initialized when Hollywood loads
the plugin. Instead, you have to manually call hw_SetTimerAdapter()
in your RequirePlugin() function to activate the timer adapter.
The timer adapter will then only be activated if the user calls
@REQUIRE on your
plugin. Otherwise, Hollywood will use its default timer handler. See Auto and manual plugin initialization for details.
See hw_SetTimerAdapter for information on how to install your timer adapter.
This plugin type is supported since Hollywood 6.0.
