timer issue

3 posts in this topic

can anyone point out to me why this wont work. I'm probably missing something really basic.... but I keep missing it. If I run the file after

$t1 = "15:00"
$ct = @hour&":"&@MIN

While 1

If $ct=$t1 Then
      MsgBox(0, "", "Times match")
EndIf

Wend

If I run the script before 15:00, the time passes without the MsgBox appearing. If I run the script at 15:00 it will run but the MsgBox is still generated after 15:01

Any help appreciated

It will only match if you start the script at 15:00. Try tthis

$t1 = "15:00"

While 1
$ct = @hour&":"&@MIN
If $ct=$t1 Then
      MsgBox(0, "", "Times match")
EndIf

That's really helpful. Thank you. Hindsight is always 20-20 but of course in the original form it doesn't update the variable $ct DOH!!!!
