Display Dynamic Time

Posted on 2004-10-28
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
Have a date/time computed field in a form. The formula for this field is @Now.
In the properties for this field, I've set only to display time.

It is displaying time correctly. However, it is not dynamic. When the form is composed, I want to display the time dynamically. I mean show the clock running.

Is this possible?

    You can use NotesTimer and set this field using timer event. You can find an example in help

    Hemantha's right. Don't search, use the Index, go to NotesTimer.

    If not, go to then Notes/Domino or so, then Documentation, you'll find the help-files under Products. A warning though: I've tried to solve lots of time(r)-related stuff with a NotesTimer, it proved to be the most unreliable feature under Notes. Don't make things too complicated or you will get very angry users ;)

    Your example, from the Help:

    Dim elapsedTime As Integer
    Dim elapsedTimer As NotesTimer
    %INCLUDE "lsconst.lss"

    Sub Postopen(Source As Notesuidocument)
      Set elapsedTimer = New NotesTimer(1,  "Elapsed time since opening document")
      elapsedTime = 0
      On Event Alarm From elapsedTimer Call elapsedTimerHandler
    End Sub

    Sub elapsedTimerHandler(Source As NotesTimer)
      elapsedTime = elapsedTime + 1
    End Sub
