4 digit 7 segment counter

hello people,

i want to create a simple counter with a 4digit7segment display. It should count everytime i press
the button. I dont even know if its possible with this display because i searched days in the internet and didnt found any similar project. I found one on here but without solution.

pls help me :smiley:

"This display?"... what display?

4 digits == counts until 9999 ?
Do you want to go the Arduino way or with Logic chips like 74XX or 40XX ?


"This display?"... what display?

Oh yes "What display?"

Would it not make much more sense to simply buy the thing?

Or, If want to do it all by yourself by using 4 7Seg, Post what's your idea to control the segments, We will help you.
