RollingFileAppenderNextCheckDate Method Apache log4net™ SDK Documentation
Get the start time of the next window for the current rollpoint

Namespace: log4net.Appender
Assembly: log4net (in log4net.dll) Version: 4.0

protected DateTime NextCheckDate(
	DateTime currentDateTime,
	RollingFileAppenderRollPoint rollPoint


Type: SystemDateTime
the current date
Type: log4net.AppenderRollingFileAppenderRollPoint
the type of roll point we are working with

Return Value

Type: DateTime
the start time for the next roll point an interval after the currentDateTime date

Returns the date of the next roll point after the currentDateTime date passed to the method.

The basic strategy is to subtract the time parts that are less significant than the rollpoint from the current time. This should roll the time back to the start of the time window for the current rollpoint. Then we add 1 window worth of time and get the start time of the next window for the rollpoint.
