TimeIt

Now with Timer support!

A simple and easy to use stopwatch and timer library for android

Introduction

A stopwatch can be a very important widget in an app and yet creating it has been very difficult. Creating a stopwatch requires you to create a separate thread to keep track of the time and then post the updates on the UI thread. This process becomes complicated very quickly. Especially if you plan on adding features like pause and split.

Similarly, a timer is another important addon an app may need without going through all the hassle of running threads or handlers.

With TimeIt, you can create a stopwatch or a timer app with very few lines of code!

For example, to create and start a stopwatch and display it with a textView :

Stopwatch stopwatch = new Stopwatch();
stopwatch.setTextView(myTextView);
stopwatch.start();

Pausing a stopwatch and resuming it is as simple as calling stopwatch.pause(); and resume() respectively.

TimeIt also allows you to keep track of splits with the stopwatch by simply calling stopwatch.split();

Similarly, to set a timer:

Timer timer = new Timer(time_in_ms);
timer.setTextView(myTextView);
timer.start();

The timer provides utility functions to check the current time and current status (running, paused, stopped etc.). Please check the current status of the timer before actually starting/pausing/resuming the timer.

The Timer class provides an OnTickListener interface which you can register to, to listen for updates every clock cycle and receive a callback when the timer completes.

Features

  • NEW : Create Timers with pause and resume support!
  • Easy to use stopwatch library
  • No need to use separate threads. Multithreading is handled by the library itself
  • Supports pause/resume and split methods.
  • Supports an OnTickListener to listen for updates in clock.
  • Set the TextView directly with TimeIt (Automatically formats the time).
  • Set custom clock delay to update the time more or less frequently!
  • Much more to come!
