Hi,

I am requesting code for a countdown timer please, where 2 labels (Minutes label = label6 and Seconds label = label7)

I have tried for a long time to try and get this to work, and it has to be "Hours:Minute" format.
I will add below the awful start I have made

If Label7.Text = "1" Then
            Label6.Text = (Label6.Text) - Val(1)
        ElseIf Label7.Text = "1" Then
            Label7.Text = "59"
        ElseIf Label7.Text <= 60 Then
            Label7.Text = (Label7.Text) - Val(1)
        ElseIf Label6.Text = "0" And Label7.Text = "59" Then
            Clock2.Stop()
            Label7.Text = "0"
        End If

There is lots of bugs, such as the last minute is cut out, and it is just buggy, the user must be able to select a time/duration for the timer to work, and also this must be able to change every time the time reaches 00:00, so if someone could help me i would really appreciate it,

Thank you in advance,

Luke

Hi Luke,
Instead of converting Label to Integer (Label1 to Minutes), Use DateTime Class for Date or Time operations.

It has methods and Properties to manipulate it.

Try this:

Public Class Form1
    Private CountDownTime As DateTime
    Private span As Integer = 1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Button1.Text = "Start" Then
            CountDownTime = Now.AddMinutes(span)
            Dim ts As TimeSpan = CountDownTime.Subtract(Now)
            labMin.Text = ts.Minutes.ToString
            labSec.Text = ts.Seconds.ToString
            Timer1.Start()
            Button1.Text = "Stop"
        Else
            Timer1.Stop()
            Button1.Text = "Start"
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        If CountDownTime < Now Then
            Timer1.Stop()
            My.Computer.Audio.PlaySystemSound(Media.SystemSounds.Beep)
            MessageBox.Show("You Lose!")
            Button1.Text = "Start"
        Else
            Dim ts As TimeSpan = CountDownTime.Subtract(Now)
            labMin.Text = ts.Minutes.ToString
            labSec.Text = ts.Seconds.ToString
        End If
    End Sub
End Class

how do i add a date to count down from instead of minutes or seconds?

Try this:

Public Class Form1
    Private CountDownTime As DateTime
    Private span As Integer = 1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Button1.Text = "Start" Then
            CountDownTime = Now.AddMinutes(span)
            Dim ts As TimeSpan = CountDownTime.Subtract(Now)
            labMin.Text = ts.Minutes.ToString
            labSec.Text = ts.Seconds.ToString
            Timer1.Start()
            Button1.Text = "Stop"
        Else
            Timer1.Stop()
            Button1.Text = "Start"
        End If
    End Sub

    Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        If CountDownTime < Now Then
            Timer1.Stop()
            My.Computer.Audio.PlaySystemSound(Media.SystemSounds.Beep)
            MessageBox.Show("You Lose!")
            Button1.Text = "Start"
        Else
            Dim ts As TimeSpan = CountDownTime.Subtract(Now)
            labMin.Text = ts.Minutes.ToString
            labSec.Text = ts.Seconds.ToString
        End If
    End Sub
End Class
