Countdown to a Specific Time

Recommended Posts

Hello all.

I'm looking for a script or how to build a script that counts down to a specific time. I searched through the site but only found timers that countdown from a time.

Does anyone know how to build a script that creates a gui with a countdown to a specific time and date? For example a countdown box that would count down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to a specific time and date.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :mellow:

Take a look at _DateDiff in the Help file. Using that on the actual date/time (look at _Date_Time_SystemTimeToDateTimeStr) and your required alarm date/time will give you the various differentials you need. A small GUI with regularly updated labels will give a reasonable display. Just do not update the labels too often - it leads to flickering. :party:

Give it a go yourself - you know where we are when you run into diffculties. :P
