I currently have a timer connected to a button that will display the amount of time the button has been held down:
AddVirtualButton( 4, 50, 80, 30)
SetVirtualButtonAlpha(4,255)
SetVirtualButtonImageUp(4,4)
SetVirtualButtonImagedown(4,4)
SetVirtualButtonVisible(4,0)
SetVirtualButtonActive(4,0)

do
if GetVirtualButtonState(4)=1
SetTextString(myText, str(Timer(),1))
SetTextVisible(3,0)
endif
sync()
loop

I don't know how to store the timer data as a string and then later bring up the stored timer string data in a different screen. I'm trying to create a high score display with the score consisting of how long the button has been held down. I've been experimenting with opentowrite,opentoread commands but nothing if working for me.

Hmm I don't think your code will make it possible to store and display a high score though?
