# Count Down - (Moved)

## Recommended Posts

Please help calculate the secs variable i can't get it right after 60s, it go into -1 and on....

```Func CountDown()
Local \$count = 5
Local \$newcount = \$count * 60 ; 300 sec
Local \$time = TimerInit()
While 1
Sleep(1000)
Local \$timediff = TimerDiff(\$time)/1000 ; turn into sec
Local \$mins= Floor((\$newcount - \$timediff)/60)
Local \$secs = Floor(\$newcount/\$count - \$timediff); Need help this line can't calculate after 60s
ToolTip("Mins = " & \$mins & " Secs = " & \$secs)
WEnd
EndFunc```

A Google search for "AutoIt Countdown" returns multiple matches, so why reinvent the wheel.

Here an example from @BrewManNH - extended with _Terminate():

```#include "date.au3"
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Terminate")

Global \$aTimeLeft
Global \$Seconds = 300 ; seconds in 5 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

Func _Terminate()
ToolTip("")
Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Terminate```

A more readable _TimeConvert function :

```Func _TimeConvert(\$iSeconds)
Local Const \$aDiv = [24, 60, 60]
Local \$aTimeSplit[4]
For \$i = UBound(\$aDiv) - 1 To 0 Step -1
\$aTimeSplit[\$i + 1] = Mod(\$iSeconds, \$aDiv[\$i])
\$iSeconds = Floor(\$iSeconds / \$aDiv[\$i])
Next
\$aTimeSplit[0] = \$iSeconds
Return \$aTimeSplit
EndFunc   ;==>_TimeConvert```

I wanted to make a countdown timer without queueing the countdown message to the next line but the previous data is removed after using GUICtrlSetData. Any thoughts on how to display the previous data/message?

Here is an example:
#include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Global \$_main = GUICreate("", 501, 313, -1, -1) Global \$g_idMemo = GUICtrlCreateEdit("", 2, 2, 496, 274, \$ES_AUTOVSCROLL + \$ES_READONLY + \$WS_VSCROLL) GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") GUICtrlSetFont(\$g_idMemo, 9, 400, 0, "Courier New") GUICtrlSendMsg(\$g_idMemo, \$EM_SETREADONLY, True, 0) GUICtrlSetBkColor(\$g_idMemo, 0xFFFFFF) GUICtrlSetCursor(\$g_idMemo, -1) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) HotKeySet('{esc}', "_close") Func _close() Exit EndFunc ;==>_close Func MemoWrite(\$sMessage = "") GUICtrlSetData(\$g_idMemo, \$sMessage & @CRLF, 1) EndFunc ;==>MemoWrite MemoWrite("test message 1") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 2") Sleep(1000) MemoWrite("test message 3") Sleep(1000) For \$i = 5 to 0 Step -1 GUICtrlSetData(\$g_idMemo, "Program will exit in "&\$i&" seconds...") Sleep(1000) Next While 1 \$nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch \$nMsg Case \$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd

• Hello, i havê been reading, and thinking.. Im on my tablet só i WLL try explain what im trying to do....
Will havê an GUI with 8 timer input that havê to set timer, but wen our if 2 our more ends at some time it havê to run 1, then outher , then outher
Timer 1, - input 5 minutes, timer 2 - input 10, timer 3 input 15, timer 4 - input 8,......
At some time,  timer 1 will end ate some time of timer 2 / then it at some time will end at some time timer 2 and 3
How i said that wen it happpens first is 2 then 1, then outhers and if 1 is done then 1st is 3, will have more than 9 input boxes that can happen it end at some time, imagine if wen timer 1= 0 function1(), then after end funciona start countdown again, if timer 2 = 0 run function2(), then after end function2 start contdoen again, if both =0 at some time first run 1 then 2, and if wen ends 1, 2,3,4 are =0 :-( :-( :-(  im lost
This work…???

thank you!

Thanks for time, any ideas???

• It's been a long time since I use autoit, and its time to share something and help to someone.

Now I just wanna to share something from my work, to contribute to the community.
This project is made on request from my friend.
Maybe this will help someone to make something else like NewYear countdown

Edit 2: Complete rewrite of the function, simplified version using a single function and without use of GUICtrlSetOnEvent or AutoItSetOption. Correct centering of message.
Edit 1: Updated function to correct possible misbehaving AutoItSetOption.
MsgBox with Visual CountDown
Self-explanatory I guess...

• I created a program that allows the user to create a countdown showing days, hours, minutes, and seconds left.

The colors fade from dark to light. You may also change the color of each column, red, green, or blue. Or shades of grey.

The program also uses MrCreatoR's

If you choose not to use the hover effect, just remove the lines of code that uses it.

It makes it much more stylish with it.

Countdown.au3

I made this because of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim !
