  • Countdown Clock

    Hello All,

    I am trying to do a countdown clock that counts down to the same time everyday. For example to countdown to the stations next show everyday automatically. How can i do this automatically when the scene is played to an engine? I know that you can use Data Countdown clock but i don't know how to set that up.

    Have a look at these examples, one is scripted and is basically working the same way as DataCountdown with the exeption you can use it with TL. the other example is using the DataPool version

      How do i get the scripted one to update automatically to today's date. I want the operator to just run the clock without entering today's date..

          As you requested, here is an autoupdate to everydays date. Just change the target hour in the countdown-timer. You can delete the targetDay, Month and year ControlPlugins as they will be taken automatically from the systemtime.

                Hi Lars, Having an issue with the clock not updating automatically in a transition logic setting. It looks like the System Time updates but not the countdown-timer. Can you help?

                    It is happening on the original scene you sent as well. Looks like when the countdown-timer script is run it tries to update the date but it just highlights it and does nothing.

                      try and add this to the systemtime script. That will trigger the setting when the element initialize.

                      sub OnInit()
                      SetTargets()
                      end sub

                            Basically it works like this.
                            Set the date and time it should count to.
                            If it is in the future it will count down to that date.
                            If it is in the past, it will count up from that time till now.
