Syntax
VM_TIMER_ID_NON_PRECISE vm_timer_create_non_precise(
    VMUINT32 milliseconds, 
    vm_timer_non_precise_callback timer_procedure, 
    void* user_data
);
Description

Creates a non-precise timer. Once the timer is created, it will fire repeatedly at the interval until the timer is deleted. A non-precise timer will not stop when the system gets into the power saving mode. The non-precise timer can be used to wake the system up. An application is allowed to have up to 10 non-precise timers. 

The callback functions of both precise and non-precise timers are executed by the same thread. A callback will not be executed until the execution of the previous callback completes.

Parameters
Parameters 
Description 
VMUINT32 milliseconds 
[IN] The timer interval in millisecond. 
vm_timer_non_precise_callback timer_procedure 
[IN] The callback function that is to be invoked when the timer fires. 
void* user_data 
[IN] The data to be consumed by the callback function. 
Returns

A timer handle. If the timer handle is a positive integer, it means the 

timer is created successfully. Otherwise, a negative integer is returned. 

Refer to VM_TIMER_RESULT for error code, if fails.

Example
void customer_non_precise_timer_example_proc(VM_TIMER_ID_NON_PRECISE tid, void* user_data)
{
    static VMINT s_restore_num = 0;
    s_restore_num++;
    if(s_restore_num > 10)
    {
        vm_timer_delete_non_precise(tid);
    }
}

void customer_run_non_precise_timer(void)
{
     VM_TIMER_ID_NON_PRECISE timer_id = 0;
     timer_id = vm_timer_create_non_precise(1000, (vm_timer_non_precise_callback)customer_non_precise_timer_example_proc, NULL);
     if(timer_id < 0)
     {
        vm_log_debug("customer_run_time create non-precise timer fail!");
     }
