I want a one button macro to show the stopwatch. Even though the SW was added in WOTLK (I think) it is in Classic. Normally it would be easy, but I have tried: /SW, /Stopwatch, /Timer & none of those work. Anyone know the command for this?

Have you seen this?

Curious what the commands look like in your macro. Though it sounds like you're just typing in /stopwatch?

@ReverendChris

Yeah the /sw command and /stopwatch command didn't work for me either, I just tried it. And upon a closer link at that URL I just posted, I saw this:

The stopwatch was added in the Wrath of the Lich King content patch, right before the expansion.
All the commands to use the stopwatch feature don't work, so it sure goes appear like we don't get a stopwatch function in Classic. You're probably going to have to find an add-on to get this feature.

I saw esfand was using a stopwatch in his Ragnaros attempts, I'm sure it used to be CT Timer or something back in the day.

There is a stopwatch, you can access it in the clock on the minimap. I just wanted a way to open it with a macro command.

/run Stopwatch_StartCountdown(0, 0, 30); Stopwatch_Play()

Stopwatch for 30 secs, apparently this macro commands works, but have not logged in to test it.

I can confirm this works, just slapped it into a macro and gave it a shot.

I wonder why the syntax changed from retail.

That works, I used this; it just opens the timer

/run Stopwatch_StartCountdown(0, 0, 0)

I guess you could add ; Stopwatch_Play() to start it counting up.
