thrimer = Thrimer(interval: 10.0, repeats: false)

thrimer = Thrimer(interval: 10.0, repeats: false, autostart: false)

And start the timer when you are ready:


Pause timer

This creates a non-repeating timer with a 10 second duration.

let thrimer = Thrimer(interval: 10.0, repeats: false, autostart: false)

Once the timer is running, you can now pause it:


You can check to see if it is paused:

if thrimer.isPaused  {
    print("Timer is paused")

print(thrimer.timeRemaining ?? "Timer is not paused")

Finally, you can resume it:


Stop timer

If you need to stop the timer:
