What have you tried so far?

If you have not yet started your project, I would suggest that you need to look carefully at _DateDiff and work out a bit of basic maths to convert seconds to larger time periods (dividing by 60 is a good place to start!). Then a simple GUI (look at GUICreate) with a label (GUICtrlCreateLabel) you can update (GUICtrlSetData) regularly (Adlib or a While...WEnd loop).

Good luck. Come back if you have problems. :-)


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Thank you Melba, I understood everything, will do it with myself. But for reply thank you. Will try to use _DateDiff + a bit calc and so on.
