scheduleSyncRepeatingTask cancelling...?

    I need to create a simple countdown. I'm using getServer().getScheduler blah blah....
    My question is, how do I stop the task once my timer reaches 0? All I need is the code for stopping it, everything else I can handle myself :)

    It doesn't look as if there is a way...
    If there is, I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me!

    1. int i = getServer().getScheduler().scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(this, new Runnable() {
    3. public void run() {
    4. // Code. . .
    5. }
    6. }, 20L, 20L);

    And to cancel:
    1. Bukkit.getScheduler().cancelTask(i);

    I'd explain but I'm not good at explaining.

    You could use izarooni 's way, or you can do something along the lines of this:

    1. new BukkitRunnable(){
    2. public void run(){
    3. this.cancel();
    4. }
    5. }.runTaskTimer(plugin, delay, interval);

    Thanks guys! I'll try both ways.
