Ever wonder how many seconds you've been alive? Or how many minutes until school starts next month? Date Time Counter is a simple program that calculates every conceivable time angle on an event, whether it is in the past or the future.
Despite its simplistic layout, this program's interface is a bit confusing at first because it lacks any user guidance. A blank grid sits under a row of command buttons. The icons include New, Save, Calculator, Modifier, and other commands. Users will want to start with the New button. A simple box pops up when a new entry is created, prompting users to enter the name of the event, a date and time, and whether it is a future or past event. After that, it appears on the screen with all the data filled in, counting up or counting down to the event. For example, someone who entered his birthday will have all of the columns filled, even down to the seconds adding up from your birth. The program also includes a monitor for how long you are working on a project as well as a calculator that can add the time between two specific dates together.
The program offers a 36-use trial, which should be ample time to learn the program, even with some of its navigation issues. Sure, it has limited appeal, but if you have a burning need for calculations like this, Date Time Counter is for you.
Date Time Counter is used to count years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds for the past/future important events based on current date and time, such as these important events: birth, marriage and anniversary. For the future events, it is just like a countdown timer, for the past events, it is a time tracker. The numbers of date time elements are refreshed automatically on the main interface, and you can set the refreshing frequency. Also, copying the value of any field, saving/loading events, thousands separator and decimal in all numeric fields features are provided. Of course, some useful options are built-in: refreshing frequency, precision of the numbers of years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds, font name and size of the events listing, foreground colors of different event types. An event is a basic data unit of this program, and a set of events can be saved as a data file (.xml format). Date Time Counter allows you to load the specific events set from a data file, usually, you can make your events data file according to individual, used scope, such as son' events, father's events, work events or life events. If you are very strict, or you like to track the countdown for some important events, it may be useful.
