Opaque datatype that records a start time.
New in version 2.4.
Destroys a timer, freeing associated resources.
Parameters: microseconds (
int) – return location for the fractional part of seconds elapsed, in microseconds (that is, the total number of microseconds elapsed, modulo 1000000), or
Returns: seconds elapsed as a floating point value, including any fractional part. Return type:
If self has been started but not stopped, obtains the time since the timer was started. If self has been stopped, obtains the elapsed time between the time it was started and the time it was stopped. The return value is the number of seconds elapsed, including any fractional part. The microseconds out parameter is essentially useless.
Trueif the timer is running,
Exposes whether the timer is currently active.
New in version 2.62.
Marks a start time, so that future calls to
GLib.Timer.elapsed() will report the time since
GLib.Timer.start() was called. g_timer_new() automatically marks the start time, so no need to call
GLib.Timer.start() immediately after creating the timer.
