I would understand that as the callback thing.
There is in dwt.widgets.Display
public void timerExec(int milliseconds, Runnable runnable)

Search through the dwt-samples and you will find several hits.

Tip: Use the dgRunnable template function:
Display.getCurrent.timerExec( 500, dgRunnable({
  // handler code
