You can use each of those things. For me setTimer is easier but getTickCount() can do the same job, sometimes even better.

i tried make it like that 

local lscarShop = createMarker(552, -1266.90, 15.69, "cylinder", 3, 0, 70, 0, 255) 
local sfcarShop = createMarker(-1649, 1203.90, 6.3, "cylinder", 3, 0, 70, 0, 255)

local baysidecarShop = createMarker(-2329, 2292.8, 3.5, "cylinder", 3, 0, 70, 0, 255)

local vehiclePrices ={{445,100000}, {602,150000},{429,210000}, {536,200000}, {496,100000}, {402,2600000},{541,3000000}, {415,2500000},{589,100000}, {480, 1500000},{562, 2000000},{587,700000},{533, 700000}, {434, 500000}, {494, 2000000}, {503, 2000000}, {502, 2000000}, {579, 1200000}, {411, 2500000}, {559, 1500000}, {400, 2000000}, {500, 500000}, {603, 1000000}, {475, 400000}, {495, 700000}, {405, 1300000}, {535, 1000000}, {409, 1700000}, {560, 1500000},{506, 3000000}, {451, 3200000}, {558, 2000000}, {555, 1500000}, {477, 1000000}, {482, 1000000}, {581, 70000}, {521, 100000}, {463, 80000},{522, 200000}, {461, 100000}, {468, 80000},{592, 5000000}, {577, 4000000}, {511, 500000}, {512, 500000}, {593, 300000}, {553, 3000000}, {476, 3500000}, {519, 2000000}, {460, 1500000}, {513, 2000000}, {417, 800000},{487, 1500000},{469, 800000},{473, 200000}, {493, 500000}, {452, 700000}, {454, 200000}}

Oh, you can't use it like that. Read what the wiki says: https://wiki.multitheftauto.com/wiki/GetTickCount

This function returns amount of time that your system has been running in milliseconds.

So you can't compare it like that as it will always be a lot higher than 45000. You can compare two variables which you've assigned to getTickCount(). For example:

1. You make "local startTime = getTickCount()" when the resource starts.

2. You make "local currentTime = getTickCount()" when some condition is met (not when the resource starts)

3. Now you can check it like this somewhere else in your code: "if currentTime - startTime < 60000 then".

What you might want to consider is setting players data with setElementData and then using a timer to remove there data after 45 seconds, just create an event that sets the data to false, this means the data would be removed, when the player clicks the button, get there element data, if there element data is true, then output a message, otherwise spawn a vehicle or whatever you are doing and then set there element data to true.

I would suggest not using a timer as you'd be setting it outside of your function, unfortunately I have no idea how to declare a timer as a global variable to use it across functions, but you could set it, then check if it exists AFTER near the top of your button click event...

I would personally use the first approach, set their data, set a timer to remove their data, then check their data (NOT THE TIMER) and if it's that data do nothing, else do something, then when timer hits 0, it would go to an event to remove there data, simple! :D

Well, i'm not sure what are you trying to do, but that's an example :

playerTick, Seconds = { }, 3;

addCommandHandler ( 'allowed', function ( plr, cmd )
    if ( playerTick [ plr ] and playerTick [ plr ] + ( Seconds * 1000 ) > getTickCount ( ) ) then
        outputChatBox ( 'Please Wait', plr, 255, 0, 0, true )
    else    
        outputChatBox ( 'Every Thing is Okay', plr, 0, 255, 0, true )
        playerTick [ plr ] = getTickCount ( )
    end
end );
