    ok heres the simplest way

    ~pseudo code!

    Code:
    // declare these where you need them
    
    // FPS stores last seconds fps
    // fcount is out current fps counter
    int FPS = 0, int fcount;
    // our timer for each second
    long timetest = 0;
    
    //later on...
    
    drawframe();
    fcount++;
    
    if(timetest == timer)
    {
        timetest = timer + 1 sec; // set timer  for next second
        FPS = fcount;  // set the FPS
        fcount = 0;    // clear the counter
    }
