Dear EE Community

When you do a search on the EE site it display the time for how long it took to find the records. Does anyone know how to do this.

I use a form that uses the get method and post to another page.

Thank You

Are you implementing a search function on your own site?

If so, just record the time when it starts, record it when you are done, then put the difference in a hiddien field on the posting page.  Then when you post to the new page, the time will be there for you to do with what you please :-)

Hi Eric

Could you put the start time in the page_init() and the end time in the page_unload() and take the end time away from the start time.

If so do you know the syntax for displaying the time accurate to for example: 00.01 second

DateTime t3,t4;
t3 = DateTime.Now;

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(400); //repalce your Search code here

t4 = DateTime.Now;
TimeSpan t = t4-t3;
MessageBox.Show(t.Milliseconds.ToString());//on my machine it returned 402

You can get Seconds by dividing s.Milliseconds by 1000 or by directly using t.Seconds

Hi Desp

Not sure what you mean by the following: //repalce your Search code here
Do I enter the querystring

DateTime t3,t4;
t3 = DateTime.Now;//get the time before searching

//Put your search code that you do for searching

t4 = DateTime.Now; // get the time after searching completes
TimeSpan t = t4-t3; // get the difference of the two timings

MessageBox.Show(t.Milliseconds.ToString());//on my machine it returned 402

System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(400)
Sleep the current thread for 400 ms.. in other words wait for 400 milliseconds...
thats why my machine returned me 402 milliseconds ~.4 seconds
