I would like to round down minute hand to nearest 5 minutes

I would like to round down minute hand rotation to nearest 5 minutes

You would almost have to use an image of your minute hand times 4 and place them where you want them to show. Then use Opacity with an expression like:


Using different numbers for the on time however you like.

Mmm, not entirely sure what you are after; what @mrantisocialguy has said could be it :slight_smile:

Alternatively, are you just looking to have the minute hand rotate in 12 discrete steps of 5 minutes each?

And, by round down, do you mean you want:

A. when time is 0…5 minutes then hand indicates 0 minutes


B. when time is 57.5…2.49 minutes show 0
minutes 2.5…7.49 minutes show 5 ?

So if you want A: minute hand rotation: (floor(#Dm#/5)*30)

and B: minute hand rotation: (floor((#Dm#+2.5)/5)*30)

I hope that helps :slight_smile:

Mike Option A is what I am aiming for.

Will try it shortly and let you know.

Cheers Wayne

This is the result


Is that doing what you wanted? It looks cool!

Hi Mike,

Yes it is doing exactly what i wanted.

I have a Red dot that sits behing a cut out of the Minute Numbers i.e. 45, 55… and that will stay in place untill the next 5 minute interval is reached and then I have a second red strip that rotates and shows to progress towards the next 5 minute marker.

The code you provided ensures that there is always a minute number highlighted at all times.
