Need help with for loop

Recommended Posts

PcExpert

Hi all,

I need help with this script:

$tool = ToolTip("Counting Down...", 0, 0)

For $i = 900 to 0 Step -1

GUICtrlSetData($tool, $i)

Next

GUICtrlSetData($tool, "Ready...")

What I want it to do is display the tooltip always and the loop should sleep 1 second between the steps and then edit the tooltip with the remaining seconds. But to show a tooltip you'll have to use sleep() but then the script pauses, so how to solve that?

A tool tip is not a GUI Control:

For $i = 10 to 0 Step -1
    ToolTip("Counting Down... " & $i)
    Sleep(1000)
Next
MsgBox(64, "Ta Da!", "Ready...")

:)
