I wish to program timer alarm every 800,1200,2000,2400 Hrs but my code count all 24 Hrs and reset.
My code
Code: [Select]
`#include <LiquidCrystal.h>int second=0, minute=0, hour=0;int x=0;LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);void setup(){    lcd.print("load...");    delay(1000);    lcd.begin(16, 2);    lcd.setCursor(0, 1);    lcd.print("      Timer     ");}void loop(){    static unsigned long lastTick = 0;    if (millis() - lastTick >= 1000) {        lastTick = millis();        second++;    }    // Move forward one minute every 60 seconds    if (second >= 60) {        minute++;        second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero    }    // Move forward one hour every 60 minutes    if (minute >=60) {        hour++;        minute = 0; // Reset minutes to zero    }    if (hour >=24) {        hour=0;        minute = 0;        // Reset minutes to zero    }            if (second >= 20)    {     lcd.setCursor(0, 1);    lcd.print("      MOTOR     ");    }        digitalClockDisplay();}void printDigits(byte digits){    if(digits < 10)        lcd.print('0');    lcd.print(digits);}char sep(){    x = millis()/500;    if(x%2==0)    {        lcd.print(":");    }    else{        lcd.print(" ");    }}void digitalClockDisplay(){    lcd.setCursor(4,0);    printDigits(hour);    sep();    printDigits(minute);    sep();    printDigits(second);  }`

I try to solve program on  sec to 150 but can not work
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::
// Move forward one minute every 60 seconds
if (second >= 150) {
minute++;
second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero
:::::::::::::::::::::::::;:
it 100 and than not to 150
minute++;
second = 0

how to edit code for count to 2400 Hrs.

Thank you in deed

It would be easier to use the TimeAlarms library.  It is designed to do exactly what you want in very few lines of code.

TimeAlarms library it work
but i don't know how to alarm such as 10,20,30 Hrs
How to check that 10 Hrs and alarm

Have a look at this from the readme for TimeAlarms

"Alarm.timerRepeat(Period, TimerFunction);
Description:  Continuously calls user provided TimerFunction  after the given period in seconds has elapsed.

Alarm.timerRepeat(Hour, Minute, Second, TimerFunction);
Description:  As timerRepeat above, but period is the number of seconds in the given Hour, Minute and Second parameters"

Alarm.timerRepeat(10, 0, 0, TimerFunction); would seem to be what you want but I have not tested it.

Thank you " UKHeliBob" for suggestion i will try to program TimeAlarms.h

but my old program I can program 0000:00:00
how to ?   XD

4 digit hours ?

The TimeAlarms Alarm.timerRepeat() function sets how far ahead the alarm should be triggered, not what time the alarm should be triggered.  Subtle difference.

Try this
Code: [Select]
`#include <Time.h>#include <TimeAlarms.h>void setup() {  Serial.begin(9600);  Alarm.timerRepeat(0, 1, 10, TimerFunction);}void loop() {  Alarm.delay(0);}void TimerFunction(){  Serial.print("Repeat alarm triggered at ");   digitalClockDisplay();}void digitalClockDisplay(){  Serial.print(hour());  printDigits(minute());  printDigits(second());  Serial.println(); }void printDigits(int digits){  Serial.print(":");  if(digits < 10)    Serial.print('0');  Serial.print(digits);}`
It triggers every 1 minute and 10 seconds.  I have not had time to try it for 10 hours, nor did I set the clock time at the beginning.
Sample output
Quote

Repeat alarm triggered at 0:01:10
Repeat alarm triggered at 0:02:20
Repeat alarm triggered at 0:03:30

thanks all
now i used old program
Code: [Select]
`#include <LiquidCrystal.h>int second=0, minute=0, hour=0;int x=0;LiquidCrystal lcd(8, 9, 4, 5, 6, 7);void setup(){    lcd.print("load...");    delay(1000);    lcd.begin(16, 2);    lcd.setCursor(0, 1);    lcd.print("      Timer     ");}void loop(){    static unsigned long lastTick = 0;    if (millis() - lastTick >= 1000) {        lastTick = millis();        second++;    }    // Move forward one minute every 60 seconds    if (second >= 60) {        minute++;        second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero    }    // Move forward one hour every 60 minutes    if (minute >=60) {        hour++;        minute = 0; // Reset minutes to zero    }    if (hour >=24) {        hour=0;        minute = 0;         // Reset minutes to zero    }            if (second >= 20)    {     lcd.setCursor(0, 1);    lcd.print("      MOTOR     ");    }        digitalClockDisplay();}void printDigits(byte digits){    if(digits < 10)        lcd.print('0');    lcd.print(digits);}char sep(){    x = millis()/500;    if(x%2==0)    {        lcd.print(":");    }    else{        lcd.print(" ");    }}void digitalClockDisplay(){    lcd.setCursor(4,0);    printDigits(hour);    sep();    printDigits(minute);    sep();    printDigits(second);  }`

I edited my progeam
Code: [Select]
` if (second >= 199) {        minute++;        second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero    }` it's work when count unit 199 and minute++ well done but position third is still stay but no problem because i will use it on Hrs
btw now i use arduino board model UNO R3

in my code

Code: [Select]
` if (second >= 20)    {     lcd.setCursor(0, 1);    lcd.print("      MOTOR     ");    }`  when second >= 20 my lcd will show MOTOR but i dont know how to...  use button on board for code program such

when sec > = 20  show  MOTOR   but when push button on board show GEAR

What is this all about ?
Code: [Select]
`if (second >= 199) {        minute++;        second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero    }`
Earlier in the thread you seemed to have 4 digit hours, now you have minutes with 200 seconds in them.

Do you want to
(a)  display "MOTOR" after 20 seconds then wait for a button press before displaying "GEAR"
(b) display "GEAR" after 20 seconds only if the button is pressed, otherwise display "MOTOR" and ignore the button
(c) show "GEAR" at any time the button is pressed
(d) something else

You can learn to read buttons by looking at the Button example in the IDE.

ok
Code: [Select]
` if (second >= 60) {        minute++;        second = 0; // Reset seconds to zero    }    // Move forward one hour every 60 minutes    if (minute >=60) {        hour++;        minute = 0; // Reset minutes to zero    }    if (hour >=2400) {        hour=0;        minute = 0;         // Reset minutes to zero    }`

i use int for this it can count to  -32768 to 32767  so i count to 2400 it can ??   then my clock can count XXXX:XX:XX  right?

btw

now i use arduino board model UNO R3 it has 6 buttons ,select,left,up,down,right,rst
i will use these buttons for change ALARM display

example
when time 20 sec alarm "MOTOR"  but  if sec > 20 and press button such  as left button alarm change "GEAR"

.....how to

Come back and ask more questions when you have tried and understood the Button example.

I still don't get what you are on about with "my clock can count XXXX:XX:XX "

Can you give me an example of a real time in that format ?

I don't know what kind of clock you have but, you could maybe do a nested loop to give you those hours you want. But any chance does it log Days as well? instead of doing it by hours, do it by days.

The code fragment looks reasonable to me and would enable you to count up to 2400 hours (100 days) showing hours, minutes and seconds.

We won't know until the OP replies, but I can't help feeling that there is some confusion between 2400 hours (ie midnight) and the need to allow for 24 hours in the day.
