Hi Julia, Try this... rebol [] n1: 0 n2: 0 view layout [ a1: text to-string n1 100 with [ rate: 1 feel: make feel [ engage: [ n1: n1 + 1 a1/text: to-string n1 show a1 ] ] ] a2: text to-string n2 100 with [ rate: 10 feel: make feel [ engage: [ n2: n2 + 1 a2/text: to-string n2 show a2 ] ] ] button "Quit" [unview] ] Someone else will have to explain why we need 'with, 'rate, 'feel and 'engage just to achieve this as I only know how to make it work. Which of course may mean I'm doing it wrong, but it does seem to work... (: -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]
