There are several ways you can do that. Use the getTime function to retrieve the time, and keep that in mind. Then use it again for the next frame. Calculate the difference in seconds. Then do 1 / difInSeconds and you have the fps...of course reset the first time variable to the newer value.

Regards,
CJ
