timer object that generates an implicit event to wake up the chart. MATLAB
timer objects are limited to 1 millisecond precision. For more
information, see Events in Standalone Charts.
timerobject is created when the chart finishes executing the
entryactions of the associated state and its substates. If you specify

timerobject starts running at the end of the chart step when the associated state becomes active. This step can include the execution of other parallel states in the chart.
If the chart is processing another operation when it receives the implicit event from the
timerobject, the chart queues the event. When the current step is completed, the chart processes the event.
If the state associated with the temporal logic operator becomes inactive before the chart processes the implicit event, the event does not wake up the chart.

only in standalone charts in MATLAB. For charts in Simulink models, use the
after operator instead. For more information, see Do Not Use at for Absolute-Time Temporal Logic in Charts in Simulink Models.
Execute State Action on Event Broadcast
Display a status message when the chart processes the third broadcast
of the event
E after the state became active.
on at(3,E): disp('ON');
Trigger Transition on Event Broadcast
Transition out of the associated state when the chart processes the
fifth broadcast of the event
E after the state became active.
Guard Transition with Temporal Condition
Transition out of the associated state if the state has been active
for exactly five broadcasts of the event
In charts in a Simulink model, enter:
Conditional notation for temporal logic operators is not supported in standalone charts in MATLAB.
Trigger Transition on Chart Execution
Transition out of the associated state when the chart wakes up for
the seventh time since the state became active, but only if the variable
temp is greater than 98.6.

The Stateflow chart resets the counter used by the
atoperator each time the associated state reactivates.
Standalone charts in MATLAB define absolute-time temporal logic in terms of wall-clock time, which is limited to 1 millisecond precision.
