ZylTimer is Delphi/C++Builder timer software that delivers high accuracy for long periods. This component is excellent than the default Delphi/C++Builder TTimer component, providing high resolution.
TTimer uses the Windows Message Queue to generate OnTimer events, which means that it's impossible to get timer intervals smaller than 50 milliseconds. ZylTimer is designed as a thread-based timer component, which offers a real precision of 1-2 milliseconds. This design supports time-critical applications and guarantees that the OnTimer event is always fired exactly when you need it to be.
ZylTimer is an excellent alternative for the default TTimer, which has limitations on the interval that can be set. Since TTimer uses the SetTimer API function, it can only support intervals up to 2147483647 milliseconds, or about 25 days. In contrast, ZylTimer can be set up for timer intervals that extend beyond that limit, up to a hundred years if necessary.
Overall, ZylTimer makes a fantastic addition to the toolkit of any software developer engaged in time-critical applications. With its advanced timer features and the ability to set much longer intervals than standard TTimer, ZylTimer gives your projects the accuracy and flexibility they need.
