This property is read-only.

ptr = object.hwTimestamp


Property values

Type: Integer

Time in milliseconds.


This value should be used only to calculate the elapsed time between pointer events for tasks such as determining velocity of a pointer. The hwTimeStamp property is not related to the system time, so only the difference between subsequent values is the important data.

For general time keeping you should use the timeStamp property.
