double restart ()
double elapsed () const

Detailed Description

QwtSystemClock provides high resolution clock time functions.

Sometimes the resolution offered by QTime ( millisecond ) is not accurate enough for implementing time measurements ( f.e. sampling ). QwtSystemClock offers a subset of the QTime functionality using higher resolution timers ( if possible ).

Precision and time intervals are multiples of milliseconds (ms).

( QwtSystemClock is obsolete since Qt 4.8 as QElapsedTimer offers the same precision )

Note

The implementation uses high-resolution performance counter on Windows, mach_absolute_time() on the Mac or POSIX timers on other systems. If none is available it falls back on QTimer.

Member Function Documentation

double QwtSystemClock::elapsed () const

Returns

Number of milliseconds that have elapsed since the last time start() or restart() was called or 0.0 for null clocks.

bool QwtSystemClock::isNull () const

Returns

true if the clock has never been started.

double QwtSystemClock::restart ()

Set the start time to the current time

Returns

Time, that is elapsed since the previous start time.

void QwtSystemClock::start ()

Sets the start time to the current time.
