How to use the time object in Python?

Hello everyone,

I'm still having the problem that I want to trigger an event every minute ten seconds after the minute begins as described in my other thread. As I'm unable to convert the C# version of a proper event scheduling to Python, I'd like to use the other option, running my method every ten seconds and then checking if it's the first ten seconds or not. I don't know how to correctly use the time object for this though. Something like 

if self.Time.Second == 10

gives me an error saying there is no Second property. 

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Christian Lauer

Time object in python algorithms are datetime.datetime from python standard library.
For second property, you should use self.Time.second.
