timer question

Ok, so I feel really stupid but I can't figure this one out. I'm trying to implement a timer that tells you how much time has elapsed at certain intervals. In other words, if I'm running a 600 second (10 min) trial, I'd like to be notified when 300 seconds have passed, when 400 seconds have passed and when 500 seconds have passed (or something like that). The problem is, when I run this (there's more code above but it has nothing to do with the elapsed time):

def mytimer2(num):
if num == 0:
print 'Elapsed time:', viz.elapsed(),'seconds'

def onkeydown(key):
if key == ' ':
viz.starttimer(0,(1.0/40),viz.FOREVER)
viz.starttimer(1,60,1)

viz.callback(viz.KEYDOWN_EVENT,onkeydown)
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mytimer)

viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mytimer2)
viz.starttimer(0,2.4)


I get:

Now, if I don't press the spacebar to start the stimulus then I'll get this:
Elapsed time: 2.42326859978 seconds
Elapsed time: 2.41321369057 seconds

but once I press the key to start the program, I get the output above. Is there a way that I can bypass all of that output every 0.0XXXXX seconds and just get Vizard to print when X, Y, Z, etc. seconds have passed???

You can only register one global callback at a time. You are registering 2 timer callbacks with the following commands:
Code:
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mytimer)
viz.callback(viz.TIMER_EVENT,mytimer2)
The second line will override the first one, so mytimer will never be called. If you want multiple timer callbacks registered at a time you will need to use event classes. Alternatively, you could use the vizact module to register multiple timer callbacks. Example:
Code:
def timer1():
    print 'timer1 elapsed',viz.elapsed()
vizact.ontimer(0,timer1)

def timer2():
    print 'timer2 elapsed',viz.elapsed()
vizact.ontimer(0.5,timer2)

I want to keep the original mytimer because that enables the stimulus to run when i press the spacebar. But i don't know how to incorporate the other timer--time elapsed--into the code. I tried the example you said, but it didn't work for me. Maybe i did something wrong. Also how would I do it if i wanted to use event classes.

Can you be a little more specific about how it didn't work. Did it print out an error? There is an example in the documentation that shows how to use event classes. Just search for "EventClass" and it should be the first result.

it didn't work because it still printed out:

and didn't print out what I specified. I don't know. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.
