Hello James,
 
The SVGTimer interface already has a stop() method which enables you to stop the timer. 
If you call stop() and then start(), this is equivalent to a reset, right ?
 
Concerning the event generated, I've been given an action to define a new "timer" event because the WG has decided to introduce this new event in the list of SVG events.
 
Regards,
 
Vincent

	Objet : Questions on SVGTimer
	
	

	Given that an SVG Timer is obtained from SVGGlobal, is there an IDL specification of SVGGlobal that defines the method for this?

	Also, I realize this is in 1.2 full, what is the possibility of creating an element for this timer and extending its methods to include a reset?

	My current requirement is to support screen transitions based on user inactivity - i.e. a screen saver. I'm not certain that this can be accomplished with the 'set' element - since 'set' only changes attribute vaules and can not invoke a script, and script does not have animationTiming attributes. However, since SVGTimer is an EventTarget, I can add an EventListener to it to insure that I can produce the expected behavior. With the addition of a reset method, I can restart the timer when I get user activity - delaying the listener from being executed.

	This, however, brings up another question. What Event will be generated by the SVGTimer upon timeout? 

	Thank you.
