Re: Timer: "OntimerEnd" function not working

Hi @Soko19,

 

The OnTimeEnd property will only be triggered when the timer control run out of the duration time range configured.

 

If you would like to record the time when the stop button pressed, then please follow the steps below:

1. Add a Timer control, two buttons, one for Start, another for Stop,

2. Configure the OnSelect property of the Start Button to:

UpdateContext({TimerStart:true})

3. Configure the OnSelect property of the Stop Button to:

UpdateContext({TimerStart:false});UpdateContext({TimerStop:Text(Time(0, 0, Timer1.Value/1000), "[$-en-US]hh:mm:ss")})

4. Configure the Start property of the Timer control to:

TimerStart

5. Add a Label control, configure its Text property to:

TimerStop

6. Under the Submit button, add the following code:

UpdateContext({TimerReset:True})

7. Under the Screen OnVisible property:

UpdateContext({TimerReset:false})

8. Under the Reset property of the timer control, enter the following:

TimerReset
