Timer issue

7 posts in this topic

i was trying out the timer functions. it seems that when i try to use timerdiff() in an if statement nothing happens.

example code:

$time = TimerInit()
While 1
    if TimerDiff($time) = 3000 then Exit
WEnd

anyone mind commenting on this or if im doing something wrong?

Hehehe,

$time = TimerInit()

While 1

if TimerDiff($time) >= 3000 then Exit

WEnd

You'd have to be really lucky to actually hit 3000ms :D

WEnd

Very little chance it's going to test it at exactly 3 seconds.

i want it to trigger at ~3 sec

lol i see now. so considering the delay, what would be a reasonable time for when to check for to make it near 3 sec?

3000-3500ms?

Maybe use

If $elapsed >= 2980 Then ExitLoop

Imho, 2999.9999 is your best shot:

$iTimer = TimerInit()

While 1
    ;Sleep(1)
    
    $iTimer_Diff = TimerDiff($iTimer)
    If $iTimer_Diff > 2999.9999 Then Exit MsgBox(64, 'Test', 'TimerDiff: ' & $iTimer_Diff)
WEnd

:D

If some stuff is inside the loop, then the loop gets slower and the timing checks more "rare"

It also depends on OS and PC performance and load.
