calculations with time

Post by henri66 » 04 Jun 2013 09:42

is it possible to calculate with times?

for example: getDate() - triggertime (to test in an if-Statement whether the result is bigger then 10 minutes)

thanks

Hi,

The function getDate and triggertime return the number of milliseconds since 1970. You can directly use the values to calculate the difference:

diff = getDate() - triggertime;
if(diff>10*60*1000)
{
...
}

Regards,
Martin
