Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Event duration, what is more effective start datetime end datetime, or 1 hr long?

    Event duration, what is more effective start datetime end datetime, or 1 hr long?

    I'm about to add Event Duration to the Calendar class.

    There is two ways I believe I can approach this
    1. Add MySQL column for EventEndTime. Example: StartTime 2009-11-20 08:00:00, EndTime 2009-11-20 09:30:00
    2. Add MySQL column for EventDuration. Example: EventTime 2009-11-20 08:00:00, EventDuration 01:30:00

    Which one if your opinion is more effective?
    "You are playing a very dangerous game"
    "Change always is"

    Numero Uno, it seems more inline with your current setup. Date math sucks, easier just to show start and end times as you have been doing throughout.
