Showing the running time of the timer


Recommended Posts

This function works properly:

$begin = TimerStart()

$dif = TimerStop($begin)

MsgBox(4096,"Time Difference",$dif)

But is it possible to display the running time without stopping the timer?

I tried several things without success.

Thanks in advance!

Johannes,

This will show the splashtext screen and update it ....

$begin = TimerStart()

$W_Title = "Progress Window"

while 1

Showstatus("Running for:" & TimerStop($begin))

sleep(1000)

wend

Func ShowStatus($msg)

if Not WinExists($W_Title,"") then

    SplashTextOn($W_Title,$msg,300,100,1,1,6,"Arial",10,600)

else

    ControlSetText($W_Title,"","Static1",$msg)

EndIf

EndFunc

TimerStop doesn't actually "stop" the timer it just gives you the difference of the current time and the "base" time. So you can keep using TimerStop with the original return value of TimerStart.
