tajhaslani,

PowerLanguage does not have a built-in sleep timer. For realtime use you could store the computer time at entry and perform other calculations X seconds later.

Regards,

ABCTG

Don't bother, We've tried the VC++ Sleep API and it didn't work as expected. MC depends on its own timer and Sleep API doesn't work with it.

You can use BarsSinceEntry() and BarsSinceExit() to delay order execution.
Granted, this is not perfect....especially when using Range or Tick bars instead of time bars.
