I thinks just me, but the _Date functions weren't working f - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

I have an app I use for logging that I started writing in 2004.

I have used it all that time.

I needed to add a time out.

Whenever tried something like this

$start = _Date_Time_GetLocalTime()
$next = _Date_Time_GetLocalTime()
$diff = _DateDiff( $next, $start)

$diff would always turn out to be zero.

I messed around with formatting $start and $next, but still got zero.

so I did this instead

Func tomsTimeStamp()
    Local $timestamp =  StringFormat("%04d/%02d/%02d %02d:%02d:%02d",@YEAR,@MON,@MDAY,@HOUR,@MIN,@SEC)
    Return $timestamp

Func tomsTimeToSeconds( $timestamp)
    Local $part = StringRegExp($timestamp,"(\d+)\/(\d+)\/(\d+) (\d+):(\d+):(\d+)",$STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH )
    Local $year = $part[0]
    Local $month = $part[1]
    Local $day = $part[2]
    Local $hour = $part[3]
    Local $minute = $part[4]
    Local $second = $part[5]
    Local $totalSeconds = 0
    $year = $year - 1970
    $totalSeconds = $second
    $totalSeconds = $totalSeconds + $minute * 60
    $totalSeconds = $totalSeconds + ( $hour *60 *60 )
    $totalSeconds = $totalSeconds + $day * 86400
    $totalSeconds = $totalSeconds + $year * 31557600
    Return $totalSeconds

$StartTime = tomsTimeStamp()
Sleep( 10000)
$newTime = tomsTimeStamp()
$difference = tomsTimeToSeconds($newTime) - tomsTimeToSeconds($StartTime)
MsgBox($IDOK ,"The","Difference is " & $difference,5)


I think its a personal problem, with the above code my Logger has a time out for those times I'm to busy to press OK.
