Trouble with TimerDiff inside an Array

Recommended Posts


I'm not sure if this is doable or not but what i'm trying to do is create a countdown timer for multiple timers to then run a 'reset' function.

#include <Timers.au3>

Global $rounds
Global $A, $C
Global $Timer_Count[10]
Global $Timer_I[10]

$rounds = Inputbox("Number of rounds", "How many")

For $A = 1 To $rounds
    $Timer_Count[$A] = Inputbox("Question" & $A, "How many seconds" & $A & "?") * 1000


Func _SetTimers($countT)
    Local $nTime
    $Timer_I[$countT] = _Timer_Init()
    ;Msgbox(4,"Called Timer " & $countT, "This Timer was started " & $Timer_I[$countT])

Func _AllTimers()

 Local $AT_gTimer, $AT_dTimer, $AT_sTimer
For $C = 1 To $rounds
$AT_dTimer = _Timer_Diff($Timer_I($C))
$AT_gTimer = $Timer_Count[$C] 

If $ATdTimer >= $AT_gTimer Then MsgBox(0,"TIME TO BUILD AGAIN!", "YOUR ALMOST THERE" & $C " Timer is up")



While 1 

Right now its creating a Error setting the Timer Diff of the Array.

you have tupo in there

$AT_dTimer = _Timer_Diff($Timer_I($C))
;change to
$AT_dTimer = _Timer_Diff($Timer_I[$C])

did not tested rest of code, to answer your question, its doable.

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.

... for multiple timers ...

straysweeper, you seem to have the wrong idea about timers.

So just to be sure. _Timer_Diff(), or TimerDiff() for that matter, just return the current cpu-tick value.

There not creating some special timer objects. -> as in something that has to be created separably if you like to have more of them.
