ad customisers character count

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am trying to set up an ad customiser showing number of days till an event. using the countdown function.

 

How do I count the character limit? How many characters should I count or allow for this part of the line showing COUNTDOWN function.

If I know this I can calculate how much I have left for the rest of the characters within that line. My understanding  is that if it shows as 35 days then I have to count 7 characters. Am I right ? The character counting tool when creating the ad showed a number which was confusing ( I dont remember exactly what it showed now Smiley Embarassed). 

 

Thanks in advance

Hey Arunansu,

Yes "35 days" = 7 characters ("35"=2, "space"=1, "days"=4)

Cheers,

Asaf

I'd just like to add to this:

You need to allow more space than for just "days" as when your countdown timer reaches the last day it will change to "23 hours" and during the last hour it will change to minutes, therefore you need to leave enough space to display "60 Minutes" - 10 Characters
