Regarding ActionTimer, that error is because you didn't properly stop the previously running action before executing a new one. In other words, the error happens if two or more such actions "overlap" from a time point of view.
As far as the second problem, I was trying to investigate how to 'stop' the first action or prevent a second action (mouseover) even if I mouseover it, but I can seem to be able to do so. I'll create a new thread in a few minutes.

Okeydokey. I'll check it out tomorrow, as it's past midnight where I live. ;-)

Sorry for being dim, but was the option of using !OnChangeAction ever considered to accomplish your goal? (I did not read every previous posts so... :oops: )
Can't fix it if it ain't broke - unless it is in code.

OnChangeAction, ok, but for ...? In a Time measure, the OnChangeAction would most likely being triggered every second, and as far as I can tell, it was not the desired behavior, it was more like once every N minutes / seconds or so (even 1 hour, if we take the initial post) - please correct me if I'm wrong. :confused:

Or, are you talking about stopping an ActionTimer action? :???:

P.S. No need to feel sorry for anything, don't worry. ;-)
