timer-count

Arguments: timer

This function returns a non-negative integer indicating the number of times that a timer's interval has elapsed since it was most recently started. This value is supplied for general information, and is not used internally by Common Graphics. An application could modify this value if desired, though there is probably no reason to do so.

When a timer is started, this property is set to zero. Each time a timer's interval has elapsed, the default timer method increments the timer's timer-count by one and then calls its on-timer function. If a timer count reaches 500 million, it is reset to zero to prevent the consing of bignums.

timer-count is a property of the timer class.

See cg-timers.htm for more information on timers.
