MTimer Class Reference
[OpenMaya - API module for common classes]

#include <MTimer.h>

List of all members.

Detailed Description

This class works similar to timerX MEL command.

MTimer class provides the functionality for calculating the time elapsed/consumed in executing a particular portion of the code. The portion of the code to be timed is embedded inbetween the calls to'beginTimer()' and 'endTimer()'. A call to 'elapsedTime()' gives the time spent in executing that portion of the code. The calculated time in seconds will be with 2 decimal accuracy.


threadTestCmd.cpp, and threadTestWithLocksCmd.cpp.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

MTimer::MTimer (  )

Copy Constructor.

[in] src the instance to copy

MTimer::~MTimer (  ) 

The class destructor.

Member Function Documentation

void MTimer::beginTimer (  ) 

The call to this function starts the timer.


void MTimer::endTimer (  ) 

The call to this function ends the timer.


double MTimer::elapsedTime (  ) 

This function returns the time elapsed between the calls to beginTimer and endTimer.


MTimer & MTimer::operator= ( const MTimer rhs  ) 

Assignment operator.

[in] rhs The timer to copy from.

bool MTimer::operator== ( const MTimer rhs  )  const

Equality operator. Checks whether the start time and end time are same.

[in] rhs The timer to compare with.

bool MTimer::operator!= ( const MTimer rhs  )  const

InEquality operator.

[in] rhs The timer to compare with.

void MTimer::clear (  ) 

This function resets the member variables so that same MTimer object can be used to time other portions of the code.
