Cross-posting is against the rules of the forum. The reason is that duplicate posts can waste the time of the people trying to help. Someone might spend 15 minutes (or more) writing a detailed answer on this topic, without knowing that someone else already did the same in the other topic.
Repeated cross-posting will result in a suspension from the forum.
In the future, please take some time to pick the forum board that best suits the topic of your question and then only post once to that forum board. This is basic forum etiquette, as explained in the sticky "How to use this forum - please read." post you will find at the top of every forum board. It contains a lot of other useful information. Please read it.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
sorry i wont do it again
do you have any suggestions for my problem or are you just as stumped as i am ?
I assume that you realise that the code you posted does not compile ? Where is countDownNumber declared, for instance ?
The delay()s in the program will not help keeping it running responsively
The handling of reading the inputs is clumsy. Consider using an array of input pin numbers and a for loop
Why is there only one lastDebounceTime variable when you have 9 inputs ?
