What is the most precised DateTime I can use in NET 3.5?
Posted on 2013-01-21
What is actally precision of NET 3.5 DateTime variable ? It is 16 miliseconds? Do I have a option to replace it with some other type? Maybe with DateTimeOffset – is it has better precision?
My situation is that I have a WinForm C# 2008 Net 3.5 project which work with Start Date and then add between 100 and 500 time durations in miliseconds /video files duration/ . I understand that best is to keep the start date in DateTime varibale and to get current date with code
dtCurr = dtStart.AddMilliseconds(lItemRealDurMS);
This almost will solve the problem, as I’ll get inaccuracy with only 1 calculcation, not with all 100-500 calculations. Is that correct? Anyway, I’m interesting of the most precise DateTime I can use in NET 3.5
