ANOTHER CHALLENGE? ;)

Hi Everyone!

I am wondering if there is a way to add stopwatch capability to a FM file. I would like to diplay a running clock within a layout. The clock needs to be accurate to at least a 1/10th of a second and should display such. Does anyway know if this is possible? Does anyone have any experience with a plug-in that would do this?

Also, I'm trying to find a way to attach a keystroke (F1,F2,etc)to a script. If anyone has any experience with this could you please post?

Thanks!

I don't know about the stopwatch (wow that just sounds tough), but... for the F-Key, you could make an applescript that just tells FMP to start up a script... then use the keyboard control panel to set up the F-keys to run each applescript. (Be aware this system level F-key function takes over Fkeys in most other programs like photoshop and maybe quark).

For what it's worth, the first 10 scripts listed in the Scripts menu will have the (Mac) keystrokes command+1...command+0 attached to them automatically.

speaking of applescripts.

You could use a complied applescript with some work to do what 'cha want. *i think*: in 2 flavors.

A: K-mart way

use a script to start a complie applescript (therefore its a real app). That just displays the time. useing the tickcount fucnction that returns the number of 1/60ths of second since the comp started. (not sure of this. can't test because i'm on a windows box at work right now). it will show up in the resaults window in the applescript.

B: little better way.

do the same as above but mave and script that sends another message the the complied script which (again, i think) can send another appleevent back with the time.

i know this doesn't make much sense but try it out.
