To implement a countdown timer in your application you should have the number of days or hours or minutes or seconds. Suppose you have Seconds with you, then you can calculate hours, minutes, and days from seconds and then you can implement the countdown timer.

Here’s an example of how we can integrate the countdown timer:

In the above code snippet we are using the Timer class which fires after a certain time interval has elapsed, sending a specified message to a target object.

We have initialized the timer1 with a time interval of 1 second. You can initialize your timer from anywhere inside your project as per your project requirements.

Inside the runScheduledTask function, we are calculating the days, minutes, seconds, and hours from the provided input variable “secondsLeft”

Then we displayed the output on the respective labels.
