hi, i am new at scripts so i came here for some wisdom

i have a dialog and a labelbox on it, and i want it to display
my idle time on that label and to be updated every 1 second,
and since i dont wanna call raw 317 every 1 second (flood)
i found this online in 1 script $duration($idle)
so i stored it in %idler and made this:

on 1:CONNECT: { /idler }

idler {
:idup
var %tempidle = 1
while (%tempidle != 0) {
/set %idler $duration($idle)
inc %tempidle
timer 3 3 goto idup
}
}

thing is that my mirc freezes when i connect and trigger aliases dunno why... i thought it is cos of timer so i made it
to update every 3 seconds, but it freezes again

why ?

First: a timer is not a sleep() function like in other languages. It does not wait there and then continues where it left off. A timer is a commands that tells mIRC to run a command sometime later, but the current script just continues. This means that the timer should run 3 seconds later without even knowing what script activated it, so for the goto _place, the :_place cannot be found. Also, you set the timer to run 3 times each 3 seconds. That would mean each timer creates 3 more timers each creating 3 more timers ... -> that's a lot of timers smile

But, it is not the reason your script hangs...
You have a while loop with a condition that is never $false. %tempidle starts at 1 and you increase it every iteration, so it will never become 0. Since mIRC only uses one thread, and it's now running an endless loop, your mIRC 'hangs'.

As for your script type /help /inc first and then do this:

on 1:CONNECT: { set %idle = 0 | inc -c %idle }

This will set %idle to 0 and then increase it by one every second.
You'll probably also need some other events to reset your idle time, it's the same two commands.

i made it to loop endless coz if i make goto command, after first time script sets idletime it wont come back to start,like this

idler {
:idup
/set %idler $duration($idle)
timeridle 3 2 goto idup
}

it only passes one time and finishes...
and i need constant update of that variable smirk
