== Description ==
 +
Each script application has one timer at its disposal.<br />
 +
The resolution of the timer depends on the platform. It is about 0.01 seconds on the hand-held device.
   −
*'''[[timer.getMilliSecCounter]]'''() : Returns the value of the milliseconds elapsed since the calculator's last boot.
+
The script application should implement the “on.timer()” function to respond to timer ticks.
 +
The timer continues to send ticks to the script application even when its window is not visible on the screen.
    +
The timer is automatically stopped when the document containing the script application is closed or if the script application is deleted.
