console: timeLog() method
Note: This feature is available in Web Workers
console.timeLog() method logs the current value of a timer that was previously started by calling
The name of the timer to log to the console. If this is omitted the label "default" is used.
console.timeLog() method logs the current value of a timer.
The method can be passed the name of a timer. This will attempt to log the value of a timer created with that name in a previous call to
console.time("reticulating splines"); reticulateSplines(); console.timeLog("reticulating splines"); // reticulating splines: 650ms
If the timer name is omitted, then the timer is named
console.time(); reticulateSplines(); console.timeLog(); // default: 780ms
console.time("default"); reticulateSplines(); console.timeLog(); // default: 780ms
If there is no corresponding timer,
timeLog() logs a warning like:
Timer "timer name" doesn't exist.
See Timers in the documentation for more details and examples.
console.time("answer time"); alert("Click to continue"); console.timeLog("answer time"); alert("Do a bunch of other stuff…"); console.timeEnd("answer time");
The output from the example above shows the time taken by the user to dismiss the first alert box, followed by the cumulative time it took for the user to dismiss both alerts:
answer time: 2542ms debugger eval code:3:9 answer time: 4161ms - timer ended
Notice that the timer's name is displayed when the timer value is logged using
timeLog() and again when it's stopped. In addition, the call to
has the additional information, "timer ended" to make it obvious that the timer is no
longer tracking time.
