Unsual time display

Post by Jaffacaique » Sat Aug 27, 2011 4:00 am

Hi Dan

Something I noticed today in the drop down box under the 'All day event' tick box when entering a time for a calendar entry...

7.45 – 11.45 is displayed as 4hrs
7.45 – 12.00 is displayed as 255mins (not 4.25hrs)
7.45 – 12.15 is displayed as 4.50hrs
7.45 – 12.30 is displayed as 285mins (not 4.75hrs)
7.45 – 12.45 is displayed as 5hrs
7.45 – 13.00 is displayed as 5.3hrs (Should this not be 5.25hrs) 7.45 - 12.00 above was displayed in mins.
Could this be a possible cause of some of the syncing problems you get between other programs?

Hi Jaffacaique, the values you're seeing for the duration are correct, but rounded to a single decimal point when the duration is more than 5 hours.

These values don't have anything to do with how VueMinder syncs. The Duration input field is provided as a convenience, in case you don't want to calculate the event ending date/time. When the ending date/time is entered, the duration field updates accordingly, and vice versa.
