have three basic controls:
Clicking on Start will start the timer. The hands will begin to move and the
elapsed time will be displayed in digital form on the face. The timer is said
to be running. Clicking on Stop button will stop the timer. The hands will
stop moving and the digital time display will freeze. The timer can be started
again, and the elapsed time will continue from the time the timer was last stopped.
The Reset function only works when the timer is not running. Clicking the Reset
button will make all the hands wind back to their starting position.
The Lap function only works when the timer is running. Clicking the Lap button
will capture the elapsed time at the moment the button is clicked. The Lap time
is displayed in digital form beneath the elapsed time. A new second hand appears
on the face indicating the moment the Lap button was clicked. Clicking the Lap
button again removes Lap time and second hand from the face.
The TIMER 24 uses a Java Swing timer. The smallest unit of time that can be
measured by the TIMER S24 is determined by the rate at which the Swing timer is
able to run on your computer.
