Timing with Elapsed Time and dynamic event handling

Hello everyone,


I am trying to time a VI with the Elapsed-Time-ExpressVI. I am trying to do it dynamic event handling, as can be seen in the example provided below. the following things do I not understand:


When I start the time, let it run e.g. 5s, then turn "Trigger" to false, wait for 3s, turn "Trigger" back to True, the indicator shows 8s. So the Express-VI didnt stop counting when I turned the switch of. I can understand why that happens, but I don't how how to fix it.

Second thing I would like to ask: how can I reset the timer after it expired? When the time has expired once, the loop with the event-structure gets stopped. But since this Stop does not change when I press the Trigger agein, the timing-loop cant be started. So again, I understand the logic why i doesnt work, but I dont know how to fix it.


I  hope my explaination of the problem was clear enough and I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thank you in advance!

Also I noticed a mistake:


Theres a True-Boolean wired to Reset. This is an old version which obviously does not work. Below you can see the my latest attempt.
