alarm_set

Set an alarm to the given value.

Syntax:

GML Code Example

alarm_set(index, value);


Argument Description
index The alarm index to set, from 0 to 11.
value The value (an integer) to set the alarm to.


Returns: N/A


Description

This function can be used to set an alarm. You supply the alarm number from 0 to 11, and then the value to set the alarm to. The value must be an integer value, and you can set it to -1 to stop the alarm. This is an alternative method to setting the alarm array 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.


Next: alarm_get
