    Default Need help with TIMER reset code

    Hey guys I need help with this timer I'm doing. I have it working counting down from 35:00mins to 00:00, now I want it to stay that way until I click reset, Then it should display 35:00 mins on the clock again and when I click start again it should just start counting down until it reaches 00:00.

    I'm not sure on how I have to do this at all. I did make a reset button with code like this.

    private void jButton4ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt)

    all it does is make sets the display on the clock to 35:00 but when I click start again it starts counting down in 2's and 3's. Not sure how to fix this.

    This is the code of my timer with start button

    }// </editor-fold>

    private void jButton1ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {
    for(int ss=0; ss<1; ss++) {
    // Change the set name

    // Setup the counter to begin the countdown
    counter = *60;
    timer = new Timer(1000, startCycle());

    public static void main(String args[]) {
    java.awt.EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
    public void run() {
    new Countdown().setVisible(true);
    private Action startCycle() {
    return new AbstractAction() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    new ClockTask(null).execute();
    class ClockTask extends SwingWorker<Void, String> {
    private Callback callback;
    private Object jLblTimer;
    public ClockTask(Callback callback) {
    this.callback = callback;
    protected Void doInBackground() throws Exception {
    if (counter >= 0) {
    int millis = counter*1000;
    String time = String.format("%02d:%02d", TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toMinutes(millis),
    TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.toSeconds(millis) -
    TimeUnit.MINUTES.toSeconds(TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS.t oMinutes(millis))
    publish(time); // call publish which will call process() method in EDT
    } else {


    protected void process(List<String> times) {
    String lastTime = times.get(times.size()-1);
    jLabel1.setText(lastTime); // just update ui with lastTimer, ohters are ignorable
    protected void done() {
    } // TODO add your handling code here:[/COLOR]

    That's a lot of difficult to read unformatted code. Please have a look at the forum FAQ including how to use [code] [/code] tags, and then edit this post.

    Why did you highlight a bunch of it in bright green? On a white background that's pretty much impossible to read.
    • Use [code][/code] tags when posting code. That way people don't want to stab their eyes out when trying to help you.
