    Countdown timer

    Hi everyone,

    I have the following window:

    Image

    What kind of code would I use to allow the user to enter a number, press start, and see the countdown progress in the second text area, i.e - it copies their number to the second area, and reduces it by 1 every second?

    I'm using Windows XP and VC++ 2008.

    Thanks.

    Well as far as I remember, you should be using a... timer... :P

    Its been a while since I used the .net framework, but as far as I remember there is a class named "timer" you can use to do what you want... Remember: google is your best friend...

    Here, this should help you


    I can only show you the door, the logic itself is up to you
