I recently made a GUI on Koda.

How would i make the input box edit a section of the script e.g. how many secs to countdown: 5

then it would set that as the number of seconds.

I know i will have to make the script convert it to secs i believe.

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Firstly, please use descriptive thread titles - we can see you are new and we know you want help or you would not be here! ;)

As to your question, have you searched the forum? There are many countdown timers posted here. But if you want to make your own, I suggest looking in the Help file at TimerInit and TimerDiff - using these will tell you when a second has passed. Then you can use GUICtrlSetData to display the countdown in your input - you will have to store the count in a variable and decrement it each time. See what you can do on yrou oown and come back if you run into problems. :)
