Extended loop counter
« on: September 21, 2019, 02:57:55 AM »
Hi,

The loop counter limits itself today to the display of loops per frame.

Sometimes I wish I knew how many times certain states have been entered in total.
Could it be possible to also display the total number of loops overall?
This would be an option to activate, like "display total loops since start" or something like that. It would look like this:

1 | 2145

On the left, the loops per (current or last) frame, on the right the total of loops in this FSM since start.

Options would exist to both cap the total to a given int and also to chose to cut the text and replace the digits by ... if the number gets very large.

Also, it would be veeerrrrry nice to be able to decide to chose their (font) size and where to display them;
- anchor: low left, middle left, top left, top center, top right, middle right, low right.
- gap: distance from state

Maybe it could be slightly simplified by simply proposing anchor left, center or right, and the gap would be defined with X and Y.

Sure, the usual loop counter is there, but I'm talking about grafting some extra functions onto it, as described in the OP.
