MAX7219 Matrix LED TIMER Answered

Hello everyone!

Im trying to make a simple stopwatch with Arduino using a MAX7219 Matrix module and a button. Ive seen several codes for the MAX7219 Red 8 Bit Digital Tube LED but they don't work for the Matrix.

My intention is to create a stopwatch that with one press of the button activates, with a second press it stops, and with the third one it restarts.

Does anyone know how to incorporate a stopwatch into the MAX7219 Matrix?

Thanks!!

Literally the first hit if Google is used:

But I guess using Google or at least checking the Arduino Playground is too obvious these days ;)

I know how to search for the library, ive already tried several tutorials and examples.. Im asking because ive already tried it all.
I guess knowing too much about something and trying to help someone that doesnt is too difficult these days ;)

Well, I checked the available code and examples.
So far everything I found in the playground worked as advertised.
You asked for help without any further details provided.
And without those it is next to impossible to know what exactly might be your problem.
For some reason I don't have to time and money to order everything, code it, test it and then provide the resulting code as a solution....
