millis madness

I am trying to build a simple on delay timer. I would like to press and hold a pushbutton for 5 seconds and then a LED would come on.

 int ledPin =  13;      
 int buttonPin = 2;
int ledState = LOW;     
int state=0;
long previousMillis = 0;     
long interval = 5000;

void setup() {
    pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
pinMode(buttonPin, INPUT);  
}

void loop()
{
    unsigned long currentMillis = millis();
  state=digitalRead(buttonPin);

  if (state==HIGH)  
  {
    if(currentMillis - previousMillis > interval )
    previousMillis = currentMillis;     
   
    if (ledState == LOW)
      ledState = HIGH;}
      else{
      ledState= LOW;
  
    digitalWrite(ledPin, ledState);
  }
}

And? (hint: anything wrong?)

The LED never comes on.

I fixed the indenting to make the code a little clearer...

void loop()
{
    unsigned long currentMillis = millis();
    state=digitalRead(buttonPin);

    if (state==HIGH)  
    {
        if(currentMillis - previousMillis > interval )
            previousMillis = currentMillis;     

        if (ledState == LOW)
            ledState = HIGH;
    } 
    else 
    {
        ledState= LOW;
        digitalWrite(ledPin, ledState);
    }
}

The only time you call digitalwrite on the led is when it's low. You then set it low...

You did most of the OP's work :)

OP, please re-do your logic now that nickvd has properly indented your code. Just give it a try.
