Example
DurationMyFunction1 is int
DurationMyFunction2 is int
TotalDuration is int
// Start the stopwatch
ChronoStart()
MyFunction1()
DurationMyFunction1 = ChronoEnd()
Info("The MyFunction1() process lasted " + DurationMyFunction1 + " milliseconds")

ChronoStart()
MyFunction2()
DurationMyFunction2 = ChronoEnd()
Info("The MyFunction2() process lasted " + DurationMyFunction2 + " milliseconds")

TotalDuration = DurationMyFunction1 + DurationMyFunction2
Info("The total process lasted " + TotalDuration + " milliseconds")
DurationMyFunction1 is int
TotalDuration is int
// Start the stopwatch
ChronoStart()
MyFunction1()
DurationMyFunction1 = ChronoValue()
Trace("The MyFunction1() process lasted " + DurationMyFunction1 + " milliseconds")

MyFunction2()
TotalDuration = ChronoEnd()
Trace("The total process lasted (including the display) " + TotalDuration + " milliseconds")
Syntax
<Result> = ChronoValue([<Stopwatch Number>])
<Result>: Duration
Time passed (in milliseconds) since the last call to ChronoStart for the specified stopwatch number.
PHP This constant is an integer.
<Stopwatch Number>: Optional integer
Identifier of stopwatch used. If this parameter is not specified, its default value is set to 1.
Remarks

Various

For a same stopwatch, after the call to ChronoEnd, all the calls to ChronoValue will return the value of the stopwatch during the call to ChronoEnd.

Error

A WLanguage error occurs ("The stopwatch is not started") if ChronoStart was not called before ChronoValue.

Threads and parallel tasks

Each thread (and each parallel task) includes its own stopwatches.
Two distinct threads (or two distinct parallel tasks) can perform separate timings by using the same stopwatch number.
The WLanguage error "The stopwatch is not started" will occur only if ChronoStart and ChronoValue are not called in the same thread.
