Timer and read items

I have a text file and it is being read correctly. I want, after reading, if the item is not in the file, an alert appears. When the item is present, after 10 seconds, the item is deleted in the text box.

just do it... use the contains block from the text drawer together with your text and use a notifier and a clock component... and if you got stuck post a screenshot of your relevant blocks...
