Need some TIMER help

Post by SCC » Sat Jan 27, 2007 8:33 pm

I'm still working on the QBasic Bootcamp tut series,
and on section 7, it says i need to count from 1 to 10
by printing the numbers 1 every second using the timer
command and a for/next loop. Well...i've tried several
times, and i can't figure it out. What i have here should
work, i see no reason why it wouldnt. What am i doing
wrong here?

Code: Select all

CLS
START = TIMER

DO
FOR T = 1 TO 10
	Sec% = INT(TIMER - START)

	IF Sec% > T THEN PRINT T
		IF T = 10 THEN GOTO 100
NEXT T
LOOP

100 END

Do you mean this?

Code: Select all

Start! = timer

For i = 1 to 10 step 1
          sec% = Timer - start!
          Sleep 1
          Print Sec%
Next

Yeah...that works, but i think the tut author wanted it to be done just by the TIMER command. But i'm too frustrated with it to keep trying. SLEEP is the only way i could figure it out, too, so that's what he's getting, lol.
I need to move on to more tuts and start learning some cool stuff.
