Type Stack

The Reset Timer block is a Sensing block and a Stack block. The block sets the timer's value back to 0.0. When this block is present, the project typically utilizes the Timer output block; usually the timer must be reset at the beginning of a project for the Timer block to hold the right value.

There are no blocks that set the timer to a chosen value. The timer can only be specifically set to 0, using this block.

Example Uses

  • When a project is started, resetting the timer along with it for the right timer value
when gf clicked

  • Resetting the timer for timing each level of a game
