Didn't follow too closely this topic, however I'm not sure what would you like to achieve with the above IfTrueAction2 option. Why the Disabled=1 has been posted after the [!Redraw] bang? Would you like to disable a measure? Which one?

Copy paste error! :oops: :lol:
It was part of the original Timer code, no idea it's purpose!

Alright, recommend to remove it, even if doesn't cause troubles.

I'm trying to get three more things to work on this. I need to adapt the existing timer for use on my own PC. Using the same code but with easier ways of adjusting and start stopping.

1. The plan was to allow start and stop via a toggle using LeftMouseDownAction=[!ToggleMeasureGroup Timers][!UpdateMeasureGroup Timers][!Redraw]. But this just pauses the meters whilst allowing the countdown timers to continue, meaning that when unpaused, the timer display jumps.

2. I'm also trying to use a MouseScrollUpAction to control the Hours, Minutes and Seconds individually when timer is stopped. But I just don't get what I'm supposed to be changing. What I am currently doing doesn't work.

3. Changing serially the methods of shutdown in the [Variables]. I think I'll be ok with this one though.

When my son comes to stay, it's always a hassle getting him off a game, so I'm looking at giving him a timer before the game closes. This part is something I can also do. I know, I know, bad dad! :lol:

Sorry to bump, but could someone please help?

I'm wondering if I'm expecting too much with my expected functions 1 + 2 above. Are they even possible with the inclusion of the Lua script? I've tried everything and don't understand where the problem lies. I think it's likely a formula, but I have no idea where to start with these! :oops:

I think it's possible, but then I ALWAYS think stuff is possible. Give me some time and I'll take a look at it. ;-)

Thanks Yincognito, I was just about to give up! Thinking maybe I should just use balala's Countdown timer if he doesn't mind me editing it?
But if I could get this working, I would be very grateful. :D

A full config including the lua would ave been helpful.

And Idk about the [!ToggleMeasureGroup Timers][!UpdateMeasureGroup Timers]. The first bang doesn't need to measure to update later. It will just disable the measures specified in the group right away.

I guess it's TimerNixie of jsmorley, with the last INI code posted by sl23. At least that's the one I'm looking at, before smoking a cigar... :???:
