countdown button

2 posts in this topic

I like to have a countdown button on my GUI.

there is a number in the button that goes down from 30 to 1 and

in the rest of the program I need to know if it timed out or was pressed.

No need to have the countdownvalue.

After timeout or when pressed, the GUI can close and the program continues.

Any help is apprciated, I will send a postcard from the Netherlends.

silver217,

You could do it like this:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

; You will need to reset this to 30
$iCount = 5

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$hButton = GUICtrlCreateButton($iCount, 10, 10, 80, 30)

GUISetState()

; Get a timestamp
$iBegin = TimerInit()

While 1

    ; If it is over a second since the timestamp
    If TimerDiff($iBegin) > 1000 Then
        ; Reduce the count
        $iCount -= 1
        ; Are we timed out?
        If $iCount = -1 Then
            ; Exit the loop
            ExitLoop
        Else
            ; Change the button text
            GUICtrlSetData($hButton, $iCount)
        EndIf
        ; reset teh timestamp for the next second
        $iBegin = TimerInit()
    EndIf

    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $hButton
            ; Exit the loop if the button was pressed
            ExitLoop
    EndSwitch

WEnd

; Now see the value of count
If $iCount = -1 Then
    MsgBox(0, "Countdown", "Timed out")
Else
    MsgBox(0, "Countdown", "Button pressed")
EndIf

Please ask if anything is unclear. :D
