Sorry for the newbee question>
I see timestamp property (in MessageInfo or LocationInfo unity structures) is of type: Double.
But I always used BIG INT time stamp such as 1315990560
What should I do to convert that Double floating point number into a proper int timestamp ?
For future searchers! This is how you get time as timestamp in Unity:
long time = new DateTimeOffset(DateTime.Now).ToUnixTimeSeconds();
It will give you something like this: 1563280100.
Tested in Unity 2019
I try to be more specific.
Talking about a mobile App, that need to retrieve the geographical position from GPS.
Asking the timestamp to GPS locationInfo with Unity built-in new commands (Unity Android Pro version 3.4) I get this kind of numbers:
But I think there is no convertion algorithm around to convert this DOUBLE into a BIG INT usual UNIX TIMESTAMP.
What Am I missing ?
Please try this:
private double ConvertToTimestamp(DateTime value)
//create Timespan by subtracting the value provided from
//the Unix Epoch
TimeSpan span = (value - new DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0).ToLocalTime());
//return the total seconds (which is a UNIX timestamp)
I did that and is working;
private double ConvertToToTimestamp(System.DateTime value)
double timeStamp = (System.DateTime.UtcNow - value).TotalSeconds;
