2 solutions :
1. use wait for 1 sec with messages
2. better : the send command
local Start, timerIsStarted
put the seconds into Start
put true into timerIsStarted
if timerIsStarted then
put (the seconds - value(Start)) into field "Timer"
send "myTimer" to me in 1 sec
Hope it helps.
to stop the timer, set the flag timerIsStarted to false
