    Hi all. So, I'm trying to create a simple "PC control bar" with AutoNotification. There are two things that I am not fully aware how to achieve:

    • one is having a very simple PC uptime chronometer. When my PC boots up, it fires up the "PC control bar" via an Autoremote message. In the notification, I already have a text showing up when the PC was first booted up (I use %TIME), but I want another line saying "PC has been on for ....". I just need the time in minutes, and I thought that this additional info could show up when expanding notification (so that AutoNotification doesn't need to generate a uptime counter every minute, but only when I expand the notification);

    • second one is how to set a countdown progress bar. I have a notification that has a 5 seconds timeout. What I want is a progress bar showing each 5 second ticking, so that when the bar is full, the timeout is over. Just a visual graphic of the timeout.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi! For the first one you should do it like this:
    Code (Text):
        Test (2)
            A1: AutoNotification [ Configuration:Title: Time up
        Text: Your PC has been up for this time
        Status Bar Text Size: 16
        Time: %TIMEMS
        Use Chronometer: true
        Separator: , Timeout (Seconds):20 ]
       
    For the second one you really do need to post an updated notification every time you want to update the progress bar.
    Hope this helps!
