Counting an event


Recommended Posts

Hello, I just made this in V6, please study this. You may always ask extra information how this is done..  
Kind regards, Herman

count problem in V6.mbp

Attention In V6 you have to program a signal to work. That is not explained here, we can help with that, but it is another thing. ( before a red signal trains do not stop in V6, exept when it  is done by EV ) If possible take the step to V7 or V8 where signal handling is effective done by the 3MBStudio.

Herman and streit_ross both beat me to it  (y)


Still, here's my example:    counter variable example.mbp

When the signal is set to "clear", I set an object variable with the name "counter" to a value of 3
This object variable is stored in the signal. But any variable - object or module - will do the trick.

Upon leaving the contact, I reduce the value in that variable by 1



and every time the variable changes, I

  • write it's value into a text field 
  • check if the value is 0 or less
  • and change the state of the signal to "stop" if that's the case.
    The two second delay before the signal change is for beauty only and not required


Kind regards
