Split Lap Timer Controls
There are three timer controls: a Start / Stop button, a Split button, and a Reset button. These buttons can also be triggered using user selected keyboard keys. See Keyboard Controls, in the Settings section below.
Start / Stop Button -- Starts and stops timer. Shows Start when timer is stopped, Stop when timer is running. Timer counts from where it last stopped, so you can stop and start the timer multiple times. Timer will stop at 99:59:59 if it gets there.
Split Button -- Records a time point. If the timer just stopped, and you click the Split button, the time point when the timer was stopped will be recorded. You can achieve faster splits using the keyboard versus the mouse. See Keyboard Controls, in the Settings section below.
Reset Button -- Resets the timer to zero, the 'start time'.
The time data field shows the time splits. Each click of the Split button or the split keyboard key generates a time data record. You can edit the time data, and you can select, copy and paste the data into other programs.
The Reset button normally appends a new time data series to the end of the time data. The 'Clear on Reset' option will cause all the time data to be cleared out each time you reset the timer.
The 'Clear' link only clears the time data area and sets the split count to zero. It does not reset the timer.
The 'Show' radio buttons lets you see the time data in an expanded or truncated form. The time data is not rounded. If you select a different radio button after editing the time data, the time data will be re-displayed in the new format, and any edits you have made to the time data will be cleared out.
The time data is not stored. Refreshing the timer page, or closing your browser, will clear out all of your time data.
The timer's settings can be viewed by clicking the 'Settings' link to the right of the Split Lap Timer buttons. All setting changes take effect immediately. You can change the settings while the Split Lap Timer is running.
