alarm_get

Get the value of a given alarm.

Syntax:

GML Code Example

alarm_get(index);


Argument Description
index The alarm index to get, from 0 to 11.


Returns: Real


Description

This function can be used to get the current value of the given alarm. You supply the alarm number from 0 to 11 and this function will return the value that the alarm is currently on. This is an alternative method to getting the alarm array value directly.


Example:

GML Code Example

for (var i = 0; i < 12; i++)
    {
    if alarm_get(i) > 0 alarm_set(i, -1);
    }
 

The above code checks all the alarms in the calling instance and if they are greater than 0 it sets them to -1, stopping them from counting down any further.
