C# – WPF timer countdown


I am wondering about timers in WPF.

what i basically know is how to make a simple count down timer (label) count down like this code:

private void buttonStartOne_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    counterOne = new DispatcherTimer();
    counterOne.Tick += new EventHandler(counterOne_Tick);
    counterOne.Interval = new TimeSpan(0, 0, 1);

    counterOneTime = 10;

private void counterOne_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
// code goes here

    if (counterOneTime > 0)
        labelCounterOne.Content = counterOneTime + "s";

In this example code above, the countdown is just 10 seconds.
What i want, and dont know is how i should make it as: HH:mm:ss and than make it count down.
Would you do that with 3 separate counters and labels (one for each time unit)?
Or what should be a better way to tackle this one?

Best Solution

You could convert your Timespan to a string with the ToString(string format) method. Set the resulting string on your label
