# is this the best way to transform ms timer into clock timer?

## Recommended Posts

hi, i wonder if there is a better way, because this takes a lot of memory and CPU:

```\$timeinMs = 358735672;ms, for example.

\$hour = Floor(\$timeinMs / 3600);this define the hours
\$minute = Floor((\$timeinMs - (\$hour * 3600)) / 60);this define the minutes
\$second = \$timeinMs - ( \$hour * 3600 ) - ( \$minute * 60 );this define the seconds```

it takes a lot of memory to refresh the transformation in every seconds, which means, it counts that way every seconds. is there a better & shorter way? thanks.

I don't think the above code is the cause of your high CPU usage.

Even on my pretty old PC, it runs in ~0.1 ms. Which means there are unused 999.9 ms in every second for something else.

Which means that either you're repeating the above code way more often than you should, or something else is the problem.

Btw, for these calculations to be correct, the total time (\$timeinMs) should be in seconds, not milliseconds, of course. I suppose that's a typo?

yeah, it should be in seconds, i mistyped it thanks anyway for noticing my thread.
