To just be Days+Hours+Minutes+Seconds.
For this you have to modify a little bit the code of the CountDownLua.lua script. Here is what have I done:

Code: Select all

function Initialize()
   tYear   = SKIN:GetVariable('Year')
   tMonth  = SKIN:GetVariable('Month')
   tDay    = SKIN:GetVariable('Day')
   tHour   = SKIN:GetVariable('Hour')
   tMinute = SKIN:GetVariable('Minute')
   tSecond = SKIN:GetVariable('Second')
   numberTime = SKIN:GetVariable('nTime')
   timerTime = SKIN:GetVariable('CurrentTimerTime')  
   counterSetTime = SKIN:GetVariable('CurrentTimerTimeSet') 
   skinClamp = SKIN:GetVariable('SkinClampOn')
   customMessageOn = SKIN:GetVariable('EndMessageOn')
   showYears = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowYears')
   showMonths = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowMonths')
   showDays = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowDays')
   showHours = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowHours')
   showMinutes = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowMinutes')
   showSeconds = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowSeconds')
   showDesktopOnZero = SKIN:GetVariable('ShowDesktopOnZero')
   shutdownOnZero = SKIN:GetVariable('ShutdownOnZero')
   customMessage = SKIN:GetVariable('CustomMessage')
   usePlayer = SKIN:GetVariable('UsePlayer')
   loop = SKIN:GetVariable('Loop')
end

function ShowOrHide()
   return SKIN:GetVariable('HideCountdown')
end

function CountFromDate()
   return SKIN:GetVariable('DateSet')
end

function GetXPos()
	local x = tonumber(SKIN:GetVariable('EndMessageXPos'))
	local w = tonumber(SKIN:GetMeter('GhostEndMessage'):GetW())
	w = w/2
	if x < w then
    return w
	else
	return x
	end
end

function SaveTime(_years, _months, _days, _hours, _minutes, _seconds)
	local yearsec = _years * 365 * 24 * 60 * 60
	local monthsec = _months * (365/12) * 24 * 60 * 60
	local daysec = _days * 24 * 60 * 60
	local hoursec = _hours * 60 * 60
	local minutesec = _minutes * 60
	local totalsec = yearsec + monthsec + daysec + hoursec + minutesec + _seconds
	local totaltime = totalsec + os.time()
	
	SKIN:Bang('!WriteKeyValue','Variables', 'CurrentTimerTime', totaltime, "Options/options.inc")
	SKIN:Bang('!WriteKeyValue','Variables', 'CurrentTimerTimeSet', totalsec, "Options/options.inc")
	timerTime = totaltime
	counterSetTime = totalsec
end

	local yrs = nt / 60 / 60 / 24 / 30 / 12

	return 0
	else
	return math.floor(yrs)
	end
end

function GetDays(X)
	if (X > 0) then
		local date = os.date("*t", X)
		date.day = date.day - 1
		return date.day
	else

	end
end

function Update()
   local nTime = 0
   local timeTbl = {month=tMonth, day=tDay, year=tYear, hour=tHour, min=tMinute, sec=tSecond}

Later we definitely will have to modify a little bit the code of the skin itself as well, but for now please just check how does it work.
Mor3bane wrote: July 20th, 2020, 3:53 am An interesting alternative to have not only one choice, but to have both selected from my modified date-set - "Months or Days" for example.
To be honest I didn't understand this. Please give me a few details more.

Later we definitely will have to modify a little bit the code of the skin itself as well, but for now please just check how does it work.

To be honest I didn't understand this. Please give me a few details more.
balala, would you mind highlighting the lines or parts you changed, please? I would really like to see what the differences are.

So, in the pop-up window where the counter is set from (i modified that a bit from original) it would be pretty cool to have a choice to select if months or only days are being desired in the out put. (That is what I meant - so I hope this makes more sense).

Sorry, didn't even realized until now there is such a window. Now I see.
This gonna be a next step. First please test the above modifications of the CountDownLua.lua script file.

That looks great.

Thanks.

I really, really need to practice my lua learning.

I look forward to future implementation of modification.

For a try I (manually) entered a previous date than the current one. The skin disappeared. No refresh or reload helps. How do I bring it back (just not to search it over the whole code)?

If there is an area of [where] the skin [should] be that allows a hand mouse pointer then just click and set the new date through the GUI.

To set the date with the GUI the date and time have to be followed with the enter key, before selecting [start].

I too have been working on the skin and increased the click area to encompass the scrollie graphics. If it might help I have attached your previously modified lua, and my ini here.

You may have noticed that editing the skin files is problematic, when it is running. I have not developed a way to suspend the 1000 ms update to allow editing the skin live - to try and do so 30% of the time results in a skin-breaking error/typo/incorrect edit outcome. I have not tried since unloading the skin seems easy enough...

Now I'm not sure: is there anything else you'd like help with?

No, I didn't. Both the skin and the attached countDownLua.lua are perfectly editable for me. They can be edited, saved. Not sure what you mean by "problematic".

The counter being days rather than months seems decent to my tastes. So, not really. Further modifications are not really necessary, only for experimental reasons, I will tinker with this skin since its singular purpose should be a good example for learning a bit of lua (I hope).

The main ini updates live with the !WriteKeyValue Bangs it uses. I found this to cause issues during editing with Sublime Text. I don't know what editor you use but perhaps therein lies the issue. In any case, I think I can manage with future modifications. If not I will ask again, likely for a different reason/s.
Cheers.

I don't know what editor you use but perhaps therein lies the issue. In any case, I think I can manage with future modifications. If not I will ask again, likely for a different reason/s.
I'm using Notepad++ and as said I can edit it with no problems. If a !WriteKeyValue bang writes anything, Notepad++ ask me if I want to reload the file, but otherwise it is editable.
