Hi there

I've got 5 timers that count down from 10 minutes on the same graphics title. I want to start the clocks individually with a script.

The only problem is the API script (I'm not a programmer so excuse my lack of knowledge) doesn't have a section to choose which specific text box to target.

This is what is current:
API.Function("StartCountdown", Input:="My input")

Wish it could do something like this with a specific text box to change:
API.Function("StartCountdown", Input:="My input", SelectedName:="myTitle.Text")



Is there anyway to get around this? And start each counter/timer individually. I don't want to have individual inputs for each counter.
