Scheduler Countdown? Is this possible?

I have a scheduler on a page that I would like to add a countdown timer to. For example …

“Data Refreshes in: 3 Minutes 34 Seconds”

I don’t see a way it is possible but it would be nice. Perhaps there is some hidden variable we can tap into?

I think the schedule has some data properties itself, but as far as I recall those are percentages. So you can display the time left as progress bar.

I am guessing you are working on some sort of record locking process?

The scheduler only returns a % of the countdown but if the countdown was, for example 300 seconds then you can calculate the reminder with something like


Just a case of some simple maths to convert to minutes and seconds

Hope that helps

Quick demo @brad

Countdown is set to 300 seconds
countdown interval is 1% of the countdown so every 3 seconds


Yes, it has a percentage property. Never thought of using a progress bar. That is a very good solution.

Great example, Brian. Works wonderfully!

One problem and two very good solutions! Thanks guys!


This worked really well with a visual guide on the screen

div class=“progress”>
div class=“progress-bar bg-success” role=“progressbar” aria-valuenow=“0” aria-valuemin=“0” aria-valuemax=“100” dmx-style:width.important="{{scheduler1.percent}}%">
