Trigger with Wait and Abort
How do I make a trigger to send a command in x seconds and if that same trigger is run again, it will cancel the previous command and send command again


Text: Zugg
Script: # WAIT 1000; # ECHO something

When text "Zugg" appears, the script will wait 1 second and then will echo "Something", where text "Zugg" appear again before command echo, the both command "WAIT" and "ECO" will be aborted and sent again

is possible to do this kind of trigger?

Zscript commands are executed immediately, so there are no takebacks on them. Specifically for #WAIT, it will also pause the entire ZMud application rather than strictly pausing just that trigger code.
EDIT: I didn't like my old signature

for this you would want a named alarm

#ALARM +1 "someName" {#ECHO Something}

Using the + will ensure that the alarm can only fire once.
While using the "name" allows it to be overwritten and the time interval to be refreshed or changed.
