I am trying to see if it's possible to build a stopwatch into a form in my application.  I would like my users to be able to click the start button when they start a task and the stop button when they end a task and have a field that holds the duration between the two.  I would like my users to be able to click start and stop as many times as needed (to account for interruptions to their work) and the duration field take those different start and stops into account.  Has anyone done anything similar?

I'm also trying to create a stopwatch into a form with the same requirements. Did you find a solution yet Stephanie? Was Dan's demo helpful?

I haven't found a solution and although awesome, Dan's demo doesn't help since I need to be able to start and stop the time at various points.  There was a demonstration of a similar function at last years Empower by Trinity and this years Empower by DataSolutions, however to be honest since this is a "nice to have" not a "need to have" it wasn't something I wanted to spend money on.

>I need to be able to start and stop the time at various points.

I am sure if you define the start and stop criteria in detail the solution would be awesome and just a couple lines of additional code (it always is the case). For example if you wanted to start and stop counting time each time the form was opened and closed it would be easy to accumulate the total time. And to make it awesome I would decorate the form with some nice artwork.

That is truly awesome.  The ideal situation would be someone clicking a button that started and stopped the timer.

Were you looking for something like this? My company contacted CloudBase, but their quote seems a little high. However I understand your problem, I'm also trying to find a way to build a stop watch into a form

Exactly what I am looking was discussed during a session at Empower last year, see link for details:
