All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have two unix timestamps
new and I want to check if 30 seconds has passed between them. I want to check if
oldTs is 30 seconds old or not. Basically if
<= 30 second old then I want to return true otherwise I want to return false.
long oldTs = long.Parse(processData.timestamp); long currentTimestamp = DateTimeOffset.UtcNow.ToUnixTimeMilliseconds(); return currentTimestamp >= (oldTs + TimeSpan.FromSeconds(30));
I tried above code but I get an error as –
Operator '+' cannot be applied to operands of type 'long' and 'TimeSpan'
What is wrong I am doing here?
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
Set both variables in seconds. You have to simply to
oldTS + 30.
You can get the the unix timestamp like this
long unixTimestamp = (long)(DateTime.UtcNow.Subtract(new DateTime(1970, 1, 1))).TotalSeconds;
This return a TimeSpan data type.
You can try get the milliseconds of it.
I hope it helps. Happy coding.
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
