Public ReadOnly Property ClockSkew As TimeSpan

Field Value

The clock skew.


The clock skew accounts for slight differences in the clock adjustment of the local client versus the IC server. It does not account for timezone differences.

This value is exposed to allow conversion of times between client and server for custom attributes or other values outside of the control of IceLib itself.

The relationship of clock skew to client and server times can be described as follows:

  • [Clock Skew] = [Server Time Now in Local Time] - [Client Time Now]
  • [IceLib Client Time] = [Server Time in Local Time] - [Clock Skew] - [AdditionalUtcOffset]
  • [Server Time in Local Time] = [IceLib Client Time] + [Clock Skew] + [AdditionalUtcOffset]

As shown, IceLib DateTime values are also affected by the AdditionalUtcOffset, if one is specified.
