Before I knew about Donation Coder I posted a Windows Countdown Timer Showdown on my blog that was mentioned here (let me say one more time I had no intention of disparaging App's Instant Boss, it just didn't fit what I was looking for).  I thought I'd found what I wanted with Marxio Timer, but now that it's gone I decided to write a timer that would satisfy my requirements.

SnapTimer is the result.

This is actually quite nice.

When I do my next version of DClock, I plan on keeping the same modular design with it, enhancing it to dynamically load extra tools to the popup menu (rather than hard coded to only be able to launch what I have included).

The stopwatch and timer utilities that I currently include with it were things I had planned to rewrite, but with the dynamic menus, I won't have to. I can just include a link on my app's page and recommend yours, which users will be able to just drop in the tools folder and launch it from the clock's menu.

This is great!

Thanks nudone, I appreciate it.

@app103 I used DClock and liked how extensible you'd made it, but it never occurred to me to have it use SnapTimer as another extension.  Great idea!

Well, you can't yet, because it won't show on the menu til I rewrite it. But in the next version you'll be able to do it.

Aha.  I saw the Tools menu item and all the separate tools in the application directory and thought it was pulling the .exe files dynamically.

So I guess right now it's modular, but will be extensible in the next version smiley

Exactly. Right now the items on the menu are hard coded to the tools I included with it, and nothing more (or less).

Found this today, great program, very useful for timing Stronghold Kingdom ETA's and also as a productivity boost I think it will come in handy!

Thanks justice and erikts, it's great to hear from people who enjoy using it.

I plan to add more features, but it was my second app using Free Pascal and Lazarus and there's not much documentation and it differs from standard Delphi enough to not be able to use examples I've found.  I end up using trial and error, which can be slow.  If there are any Lazarus experts on the forum, I'd love to talk with you smiley
