To refresh the tables, you'd use IBO$DMLCache with tiib_syncursor approach
if you are working with native ibo components.

WaitForSingleObject is mainly used in thread apps and NT services, where the
thread can stay sleeping waiting for a event. When an event occur the thread
wake up, performs yours tasks and returns to sleep. IBO has a sample of how
to use it in IBS_Base.pas.
