I am currently not home. But you can have a look at the .capx linked in this topic.
I know it uses the date plugin.
Let me know if that does not help you, then I can throw something together sometime this evening.
I looked at the example you sent me. It seemed pretty complicated at first but once analyzed further it didn't seem that bad. My concern is the actual usability of the .capx given that the example only shows today's date (unless I did something wrong). I don't think I would be needing that in my app, instead, I simply want to show the time since the button has pressed (for example) and count it until the player presses another button. That time might be 20 days 35 hours, 23 mins and 13 seconds or may just be 10 minutes. No rules to that.
Sorry if I am bothering you too much, it's not that I am a complete noob to construct, but this thing is really making huge problems for me, and given that it is a key to the app I am building, I am really looking into any options for solving it.
thank you once again!
