Merchants,

After this line:

GUICtrlCreateLabel("00:00:00", 10, 10)

you need one beginning with

GUICtrlSetFont(-1, .........)

But do make sure your label is big enough to hold the bigger string. ;)

You might also make life much easier for yourself by doing this:;)

It is a lot easier when you have created the controls. The Control* commands are for controls in other GUIs. :)

Merchants,

GUICreate("Timer", 120, 50)                       ; <<<<< enlarge the GUI
  GUICtrlCreateLabel("00:00:00", 10, 10, 120, 50)   ; <<<<< enlarge the label
  GUICtrlSetFont(-1,20,200)                         ; <<<<< Set a big font for the label

Rule #1: Always do a backup         Rule #2: Always do a backup (backup of rule #1)
