Use the pendingMessages function to check whether a message has been sent yet, or to perform some action on each pending message.

Value: The pendingMessages function returns a list of messages, one per line. Each line consists of four items, separated by commas:

  • the message ID
  • the time the message is scheduled for
  • the message name
  • the long ID property of the object that the message will be sent to

The message ID is the same as the one placed in the result function when it was scheduled with the send command.

The time the message is scheduled for is in the same format as the long seconds form of the seconds function.

Once scheduled, a message cannot be changed. You can cancel a pending message with the cancel command, and re-send it with the send command.
