   Tim, thank you for your answer.

  Supper, I do the next

  def reset_hook( scheduler ):
      while scheduler._p_changed:
         time.sleep(0.05) # again time sleep :))

  def addSchedulerElement(self, **options):
        self._setObject(self.generateId(), ScheduleElement(**options))
        Thread(target=reset_hook, args=(self,))

  Tommorow, i`ll check how this works :).
