Timer and then execute a command

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out a way to perform a 60 minute +10ms countdown timer and once it hits 0, then it will execute a command. I'm just not sure how I would do the timer.

Look in help file for those topics, you should be able to perform what your are intending to do with those functions.

I cant find a way to make it display a timer though so I can visually see it counting down before it executes the command

There is a logical contradiction in those 2 statements - how can you see it if you cannot make it display?

Why not post the code you are using - see here how to do it - then we can perhaps offer you some sensible advice.

Here is a way I use time, it would be more effective to use the clock on pc if you need accuracy. 
Hotkeys - ESC quits, PAUSE will pause.

HotKeySet("{ESC}", "quit")
HotKeySet("{PAUSE}", "pause")
$clock = 0
$minutes = 0
$seconds = 0
$pause = True

Func quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>quit

Func pause()
    If ($pause) Then
        $pause = False
    Else
        $pause = True
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>pause

While $minutes < 60
    If ($pause) Then
        If ($clock == 1000) Then
            $clock = 0
            $seconds = $seconds + 1
        EndIf
        If ($seconds == 60) Then
            $seconds = 0
            $minutes = $minutes + 1
        EndIf
            $clock = $clock + 1
        ToolTip($minutes & "." & $seconds)
    EndIf

WEnd
ToolTip("timeUp")
Sleep(10000)
