How can I hide the timer but have it still run?

I'm using the timer, but I don't want the user to see it (mostly because I don't want them to be able to stop it).

Is there a way to either

  1. Hide it (and have it keep running), or
  2. Get rid of the "stop" option?

Hello, it seems not to be possible
Can you share more context of your use case?

You can try putting it inside a container and use the container to hide it

Thanks for the suggestion, but if you hide the container, the timer stops as well.

I'm trying a programmatic "timer" instead. I'll write back with the results.

That's poor, I didn't realise it was so fragile! Think building your own is the best option here
