ConsoleApplication.ProcessTimeMBS as double
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method Process MBS Util Plugin 19.4 Yes No No Yes, not desktop No
Function: Returns the current CPU time for the process.
Example:
msgbox "I got "+format(app.ProcessTimeMBS/100,"0.00")+" seconds CPU time till now."
Notes:
On Mac OS X, the OS counts how much CPU time in given to the current process.
On Mac OS 9 you can get this information for any process using the ProcessMBS class.
Returns -1 in case of an error.

You can do this function yourself if you like:

dim s as SoftDeclareMBS

s=new SoftDeclareMBS

if s.LoadLibrary("System.Framework") then
if s.LoadFunction("clock") then
if s.Call(0,nil) then
MsgBox "clock: "+str(s.Result)+chr(13)+"app.ProcessTime: "+str(app.ProcessTime)
end if
end if
end if

You may need to add Error Checking code.
