Here's a little ditty that'll show you a few concepts in practice. Though not best practice, as inputs are not sanitized - I'll leave that to you



Got any questions on how it all works, do ask.

If all that code is just for a simple switch, then:

button_on = 1 - getRawKeyPressed(key)

Matematicas are not for mine, XDDD

do

print(str(1-getrawkeypressed(32))) //space key

sync()
loop


In theory must works. why not? The value doest fixes between 0 or 1 and changes very quicly.

Once you press a key, that function will only return 1 for that single iteration in your program then go back returning 0. So it's best to assign it to a variable only when the action is triggered.


keyPressed = getRawKeyPressed(32)
if keyPressed = 1 then toggleButton = 1 - keyPressed


print(toggleButton)

@Dybing - had you considered GetUnixFromDate()? This gives the seconds for a given time. NumberOfSecondsToToday minus NumberOfSecondsToYourBirthdate gives NumberOfSecondsYouHaveBeenAlive, then divide to get days, weeks, months, years, etc.
