StopWatch does more or less exactly what it says on the tin. It is a timer that you can stop… and start… and clear.

The program is designed not to hook the RTC in calculating the time, what is meant by that is that the application does not take note of, nor care about when precisely it was that you started the timer as is the case with some of the other timer applications available for CE.

Why does this matter?

Well, with a timer that hooks the RTC values, when you suspend the device and resume it after x amount of time, the application will re-value the current time against the start time and adjust the value accordingly. This program was designed to maintain counting arithmetic each side of the suspend/resume application.

Why would I want this?

Well, you might not, however if you are looking for this, I am sure that you have a good reason for it. The reason why I wrote the application in this was was because I wanted a visual indicator to time battery depletion from max charge to the point at which CE’s power management forcefully suspends the hardware. Once suspended, when you connect it back to AC ad resume the system, the value on the screen will be the value that the system powered off at, rather than a recalculated value between then and now.

Do however note that the time will continue ticking on resume.

StopWatch makes no registry modifications and writes no data into the file system of your Handheld PC (the VBCE RTL does make additions to the registry), it is low footprint, transportable and can be run from main RAM or a CF Storage Card.
