Multiple timers in Status window
 
Hi,

Being the control freak that I am, I wanted to experiment with timers regarding my prots. My layout at the moment is that I have the status window on the left side of my mud window, with a lot of information, like most of the prots in the mud.
I also made so that the appear/disappear when prots go on/off which is really nice. Now, I would like to add a timer in the status window, beside the prots currently on.

For example, it would look like:

Prot 1 [time]
prot 2 [time]

etc

The time would increase as it does, so that I can keep track on for how long they have been up and so on. Is this possible at the moment?
I have been reading up on timers but nothing seems to be able to do what I want to do.

Well... it is possible, but it would require more variables

#ALARM "countDown" -1 {
#IF (@prot1>0) {prot1=(@prot1-1);#IF (@prot1=0) {#T+ Prot1Button}}
#IF (@prot2>0) {prot2=(@prot2-1);#IF (@prot2=0) {#T+ Prot2Button}}
//repeat as needed for all your counters
}

Then in your #STWIN object, you can reference all the current remaining times in seconds.

Oops totally misread that. Same principle though.

#ALARM "countUp" -1 {
#IF (!%class(prot1Button)) {prot1=(@prot1+1)}
#IF (!%class(prot2Button)) {prot2=(@prot2+1)}
//and so on, just remember to zero out the variable where applicable
}

This one will only increment when the respective buttons are not enabled
