You can retrieve a Waits collection with the Waits property of the System object. For example:

 Dim sys As Object, waits As Object

 Set sys = CreateObject("Extra.System")

 Set waits = sys.Waits

 

When used with the Set keyword, the following methods will immediately return a wait-type object, rather that waiting synchronously for their operations to complete:

 NavigateTo

 ReceiveFile

 SendFile

 WaitForCursor

 WaitForCursorMove

 WaitForDisconnect

 WaitForKeys

 WaitForStream

 WaitForString

 WaitForTimer

 WaitHostQuiet

After retrieving several wait-type objects using the above methods, use the Add method to add them to the Waits collection object. Then, through use of the Wait method, it is possible to simultaneously monitor the status of all the objects in the collection.
