It's really unclear what your question is or what your code is trying to accomplish. Are you looking to complete a certain task or just understand a function? I think it's the latter, but I'm not sure. FileMaker's script steps don't actually run as scripts. FileMaker isn't written in FileMaker.
"if script can be executed" is not a function. And the help isn't completely accurate. I'd say the OnTimer script gets put on the script stack after its timer runs out. That's what the Help means by "idle". An onTimer script won't interrupt a running script, or jump into the script stack. It'll wait it's turn.
The "code" was simply my attempt to describe what I think is going on in Filemaker terms so that my question would be easier to understand.
Understanding the function was my goal and your last line explains alot.
Can assume that the only thing that would cause a delay is another running script?
