CountDown with TimeStamps convert to TimeString

Hi, i cant figure it out... i just want to show a CountDown in (hh:mm:ss) a Label.

This piece of code calculates the the time till the future time is now.
Code:
local timeRemainingSecs =  GetDiffBetweenTimeStamps(timeInFuture , GetTimeStamp())
So how can i convert the result to a nice looking Time string? I found this but it doesnt really work ... could I get a Example for a CountDown?

It would be perfect when the string would be with leading zeros --> e.g. 12:03:07 (not 12:3:7)

Thanks

You are probably looking for:
Lua Code:
  1. os.date("%X", timestamp) -- returns formatted time string

I'm pretty sure if you plug in a timestamp difference, you'll still get what you are looking for. You can read more about it here.

There are ways to explicitly format different aspects of the string (%X is a standard time format)
