Comprehensive Stopwatch & Countdown Timer

OBS Lua Comprehensive Stopwatch & Countdown Timer 5.8

Thank you Sweboy for your valuable feedback and help on the bugs and issues related to this update.

If you like this update, please consider leaving a review. Let's see if we can smash the reviews for this release!!

This update has not been comprehensively tested prior to release, please report any issues.

NEW FEATURES
- Timer Expire Events ('Source List', 'Scene List', 'Auto List') has been expanded to exit out of the timer loop when source list contains only one item.

BUGS
- Fixed hour input limit for count down mode
- Fixed minute input limit for count down mode
- Fixed bug related Timer Expire Events ('Source List', 'Scene List', 'Auto List')
- Fixed an issue when Timer Expire Events ('Source List', 'Scene List', 'Auto List') contains only one item.

NOTES

When Timer Expire Events is set to 'Source List', 'Scene List' or 'Auto List' and only one source/scene is defined/available,
the timer will not reset. If the timer does not reset it will display the timer's expired timestamp. If a userbase requires the timestamp to
change, then this feature refactoring for the script will be considered for future updates.

To access this feature / update:

Set timer to 'Count Down'

Set 'Layout' to 'Advanced' and set 'Timer Settings' to 'Expanded'

1708037382779.png


Assign a 'Timer Source'

1708037503884.png


Set 'Timer Expire Event' to 'Source List, Scene List' or 'Auto List'

1708037583131.png



For 'Timer Expire Event' set to either 'Source List or Scene List' you must add the source/scene names manually. Ensure the spelling is correct!!

1708037745550.png


It does not matter what is listed in the 'Cycle List' as it will only act upon valid names that exist in available 'Sources' or 'Scenes' depending on the selected value 'Source List' or 'Scene List'

1708038073995.png


Use 'Auto List' to cycle through all items contained inside of either 'Nested Scenes' or 'Groups'

1708038189387.png


To access 'Auto List' set 'Timer Expire Event' to 'Auto List' and then a new 'select input' will be available to select which Nested Scene or Group items will by cycled/used.

NEW FEATURES

- Custom Hour Unit

There is a low probability that this update may break something, so please report any issues so it may be mended.

Thank you @phagtheodnoque from my Youtube Channel for the great feature suggestion/request.

Overview:

Set Timer Format to Custom Time Format

1702454508686.png


In Time Format, override the default hour unit by adding curly brackets '{ instructions }'
  • Instructions accepted is 'H' (Overriding Hour Unit) followed by numeric value that you want the hour unit to be limited at.
  • Instructions accepted is 'M' (Overriding Minute Unit) followed by numeric value that you want the minute unit to be limited at.

Valid Input Format​

  1. Instructions Format: The input string should contain a segment enclosed in curly brackets {}.
  2. Data Encoding: Inside the curly brackets, the function looks for a pattern comprising the target_char followed immediately by one or more digits (e.g., M123, H456).

  3. Examples of Valid Strings:
    • "$H:$M:$S,$F{M90}" (with target M, extracts 90)
    • "$H:$M:$S,$F{H100M200}" (with target H, extracts 100 and with target M, extracts 200)
    • "$H:$M:$S,$F{M90H999}" (with target H, extracts 999 and with target M, extracts 90)
  4. Select Target Character: Decide the uppercase character (target_char) you're interested in. This should be a single uppercase letter like 'M' (Minute) or 'H' (Hour)
