deprecated class %ZEN.Component.timer extends %ZEN.Component.component

Client-side timer object. This component automatically creates a javascript timer object within the client and initializes it when the page is first loaded. The timer is one-shot; after it fires its ontimeout event, you must restart it by calling the client startTimer() method.
