Alright, first post here, but I've been lurking a while. No offense to anyone, but I got tired of my tick timer being in the status bar and overwriting stuff that was there every 2s, so I decided to move it out to a miniwin... and since I was doing that, I figured I'd give it a nice analog face... :)

Anyhow, what I have is IMHO a functional and nice looking tick timer. Y'all enjoy...

PS - if you submit issues through the google project, I will try to address them

Ah and I just discovered you can click on the triangle to bring up a menu which lets you change fonts, colours etc.

I would like to use this analog timer, but quite frankly I am not a good enough programmer to be able to modify it for my needs. Specifically, I don't want a tick timer, I simply am looking for an analog dial that shows how much time left until a mushclient timer fires. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Pez

First replace all instances of 30 with the duration of your timer in seconds.

Then replace

function OnPluginTelnetOption (option)
   if option == string.char (101,1) then
      -- last_tick = os.time()
      last_tick = os.clock()
      -- SetStatus ("Time to tick: " .. (last_tick + 30) - os.time ())
   end -- if
end -- function

with something like

function MyTimerHasFired()
   last_tick = os.clock()
end

and have your timer call that function when it fires.

I think that ought to be all you need.

Call GetTimerInfo (13) to find how long until a timer fires.

Template:function=GetTimerInfo GetTimerInfo

The documentation for the GetTimerInfo script function is available online. It is also in the MUSHclient help file.

I got it working using the tips from Fiendish. That gave me exactly the timer I needed, and I am loading/enabling/disabling the timer from my vbscript. I realize there is probably a more efficient way to do it, but that was the easiest for me and is working perfectly. Thanks for the help!
