OEMEthGetSecs (Windows CE 5.0)

Windows CE 5.0
Send Feedback

This function returns the number of seconds that have passed since a certain fixed time.

DWORD OEMEthGetSecs (void); 



Return Values

Count of seconds that have passed since a certain fixed time.


This function handles time-outs while in polling mode. The origin of the count is unimportant as long as the count is incremental.

Do not make system calls from within the OEMEth* functions. Also, avoid calling OAL functions that might call system functions.

For example, if the OEMGetRealTime function calls the FileTimeToSystemTime function, OEMEthGetSecs should not call OEMGetRealTime.


OS Versions: Windows CE 2.10 and later.
Header: Halether.h.
