Countdown Timer help me, Please!

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, I'm trying to build a app for my school and it requires a timer. Here's what I've gotten so far but I don't know how to get any further. 

#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=c:\users\nikolas\desktop\autoit\install\koda_1.7.3.0\forms\timer.kxf
$Form_timer = GUICreate("Form_timer", 196, 143, -1, -1)
$timerlbl = GUICtrlCreateLabel("", 40, 10, 103, 41)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 24, 400, 0, "MS Sans Serif")
$startBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Start", 10, 60, 81, 31)
$resetBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("Reset", 100, 60, 81, 31)
$minBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("+60", 10, 100, 81, 31)
$halfBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton("+30", 100, 100, 81, 31)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

Global $timeValue = 0

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $minBtn
            $timeValue = $timeValue + 60
            GUICtrlSetData($timerlbl, $timeValue)
        Case $halfBtn
            $timeValue = $timeValue + 10
            GUICtrlSetData($timerlbl, $timeValue)
        Case $resetBtn
            $timeValue = 0
            GUICtrlSetData($timerlbl, $timeValue)
        Case $startBtn
            _Run()
    EndSwitch
    WEnd

Func _Run()
    While 1
        Timer()
    WEnd
EndFunc   ;==>_Run

Func Timer()
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $resetBtn
            $timeValue = 0
    EndSwitch
        If $timeValue == 0 Then
            MsgBox(0,'Done','Timer Done')
        ElseIf $timeValue <> 0 Then
            $timeValue = $timeValue - 1
            GUICtrlSetData($timerlbl, $timeValue)
            Sleep(1000)
            Timer()
        EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Timer

What is left for me to do is transform the seconds into minutes. If anyone could help me it would be great! Thanks!

This is how I convert seconds to H:M:S

#include "date.au3"
$FutureTime = "2015/11/5 13:10:05"
$seconds = _DateDiff("s", _NowCalc(), $FutureTime)
$iDays = Int($seconds / 86400)
$iHours = Int(($seconds - ($iDays * 86400)) / 3600)
$iMinutes = Int((($seconds - ($iDays * 86400)) - ($iHours * 3600)) / 60)
$iSeconds = Int(((($seconds - ($iDays * 86400)) - ($iHours * 3600) - ($iMinutes * 60)) * 60) / 60)
MsgBox(0, "Time until..", $iDays & " Days, " & $iHours & " Hours, " & $iMinutes & " minutes, " & $iSeconds & " seconds")

Modify this as needed to turn it into a countdown.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I've seen that before but never actually gotten it to work, that's why I kinda leaned into the forums for a little help you know?

That script converts seconds to days, hours, minutes and seconds and places the values into variables. There really isn't an easier way to do it.

Here is the same snippet that I made into a working countdown timer. It's not highly accurate, but it works with a small margin of error in the countdown time.

#include "date.au3"
Global $aTimeLeft
Global $Seconds = 600 ; seconds in 10 minutes
Global $hTimer = TimerInit()
$aTimeLeft = _TimeConvert($Seconds) ; convert the seconds into an array holding the D:H:M:S
ToolTip("Days:  " & $aTimeLeft[0] & " Hours: " & $aTimeLeft[1] & " Minutes: " & $aTimeLeft[2] & " Seconds: " & $aTimeLeft[3], Default, Default, "Time Left") ; Display the converted seconds in a tooltip
While $Seconds
    If TimerDiff($hTimer) >= 1000 Then ; if a second or more has passed then process these commands
        $aTimeLeft = _TimeConvert($Seconds) ; convert the seconds into an array holding the D:H:M:S
        $Seconds -= 1 ; subtract a second from the countdown
        ToolTip("Days:  " & $aTimeLeft[0] & " Hours: " & $aTimeLeft[1] & " Minutes: " & $aTimeLeft[2] & " Seconds: " & $aTimeLeft[3], Default, Default, "Time Left") ; Display the converted seconds in a tooltip
        $hTimer = TimerInit() ; reset the timer handle
    EndIf
WEnd
ToolTip("")
Func _TimeConvert($iSeconds)
    Local $aTimeSplit[4]
    $aTimeSplit[0] = Int($iSeconds / 86400)
    $aTimeSplit[1] = Int(($iSeconds - ($aTimeSplit[0] * 86400)) / 3600)
    $aTimeSplit[2] = Int((($iSeconds - ($aTimeSplit[0] * 86400)) - ($aTimeSplit[1] * 3600)) / 60)
    $aTimeSplit[3] = Int(((($iSeconds - ($aTimeSplit[0] * 86400)) - ($aTimeSplit[1] * 3600) - ($aTimeSplit[2] * 60)) * 60) / 60)
    Return $aTimeSplit
EndFunc   ;==>_TimeConvert
