  • I tried it in many ways and it's still not removed


    runtime.removeEventListener("tick",() => Tick(runtime));

  • But why do you want to do this?

    Have you tried deleting these lines of code?

    runOnStartup(async runtime =>
    	runtime.addEventListener("beforeprojectstart", () => OnBeforeProjectStart(runtime));
    function OnBeforeProjectStart(runtime)
    	runtime.addEventListener("tick", () => Tick(runtime));
    function Tick(runtime)

    Or these?

    	runtime.addEventListener("tick", () => Tick(runtime));

  • I just tried it and it works for me.

    You have to make sure you pass exactly the same function reference to both addEventListener and removeEventListener. If you do this:

    runtime.addEventListener("tick", () => Tick(runtime));

    then you haven't saved the function reference anywhere, so it's impossible to remove it. Instead you have to save the function reference to a variable like this:

    const tickFunc = () => Tick(runtime);
    runtime.addEventListener("tick", tickFunc);
    // later on...
    runtime.removeEventListener("tick", tickFunc);

    That ensures you pass the same function reference to both methods. Note if you try to remove () => Tick(runtime) again, or just Tick, those are both different functions to the one you added the event with so it won't work.
