This section describes how to use the Timecode Calculator.

Timecode Calculator ImageThe application is laid out similarly to a conventional calculator. However the first thing that may be obvious is that instead of a single display of the number being calculated there are three. This is because it is quite frequent with timecode calculations to have to repeat operations on a single number and also, due to the often strange timecode form, it is useful to be able to see the two operators and the result at the same time. The top display, is operator 1, the second operator 2, and the third, shown in yellow, is the result. You can select either operator 1 or operator 2 by simply touching the relevant display section. The current operator being edited is shown by the means of a cursor under the current number. (In the picture to the left, this is on operator 2 at the right hand number).

As for the keys on the calculator. Most of these are as you would expect. There are the standard 0 to 9 keys as well as the four standard arithmetic keys of + - x % and the important =. There are, however, some additional keys, most familiar to a conventional calculator but some not so.
