Dear guy.

I made a EA. with also loop code for show time left for candle close. code is below. but it is not work perfect. sometime new candle but still countdown, countdown not reset. i want. when new tick come then countdown will be reset and update with main time. and when tick not come then loop run.

int start(){
while(!(IsTesting() || IsStopped() || isRLastTime)){

    CloseTime(isUPTrend);
    WindowRedraw();
    Sleep(1000);
}
   return (0);
}

void CloseTime(bool isUp)
{
  
  //Print(LastTime+"   "+iTime(NULL,0,0));
  if (LastTime==0){
    z=0;
    z=Time[0]+Period()*60-CurTime();
    LastTime=iTime(NULL,0,0);
  }else{
    if(z>0){z=z-1;}else{isRLastTime=true;}
    Print(z);
  }

  m=z;
  s=m%60;
  m=(m-s)/60;

  string _sp="",_m="",_s="";
  if (m<10) _m="0";
  if (s<10) _s="0";
  
  if (isUp==true){
    _sp = "CURRENT TREND: UP";
  }else{
    _sp = "CURRENT TREND: Down";
  }
  
  ObjectSetText(objname,_sp+"    Next Bar in "+_m+DoubleToStr(m,0)+":"+_s+DoubleToStr(s,0), 10, "Courier", Clock_Color);
  return(0);
}

Get rid of the while()loop and work with ticks as they come.
