    • setNextExecution

      public void setNextExecution(long delay)
      Re-schedules the task to run next after the given delay. If this task was repeating it will continue so using the same period as before.
      delay -
    • setPeriod

      public void setPeriod(long period)
      Sets the period of this task. This will re-schedule the task to be run next after the given period if the task is still running.
      period - Period in ticks or -1 to cancel the task and make it non-repeating
    • callSync

      public static <T> @Nullable T callSync(Callable<T> c)
      Equivalent to callSync(c, Skript.getInstance())
    • callSync

      public static <T> @Nullable T callSync(Callable<T> c, org.bukkit.plugin.Plugin p)
      Calls a method on Bukkit's main thread.

      Hint: Use a Callable<Void> to make a task which blocks your current thread until it is completed.

      c - The method
      p - The plugin that owns the task. Must be enabled.
      What the method returned or null if it threw an error or was stopped (usually due to the server shutting down)
