How To Calculate Time For Macro To Run?


Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to display, once a macro has finished, how long it took for the macro to run.


It seems like it should be a simple thing to do, but I cannot find whatever functions are necessary, short of grabbing the time to a text var at the beginning and end, converting the relevant bits to integers, converting minutes to 60 seconds and subtracting the two times. This seems unnecessarily convoluted, is there a better way to do this?

You can set integer variables to hour:minute:seconds at the beginning of the macro and then again at the end of the macro and calculate them as you described. This would cut out the Variable Modify String command.


This macro has already been written and is available in the PGM Functions library.
