Function: string llGetInventoryAcquireTime( string item );

Returns a string with the timestamp that the item was added to the prim's inventory.

The time is in the UTC time zone in the format "YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssZ"

Appears to be accurate to seconds.

• string item an item in the inventory of the prim this script is in


  • If item is missing from the prim's inventory then an error is shouted on DEBUG_CHANNEL.
  • This function currently returns an ISO timestamp that is missing milliseconds. It is recommended that you code your applications in preparation of millisecond support being added at a later date.
  • Using llListSort to sort a list of timestamps that both include and exclude milliseconds will have undesired results. ".000000" will first have to be inserted into timestamps missing milliseconds.

If there is no other item in the inventory, you get the timestamp from the script itself.

        llSay(0, "Hello, Avatar!");

    touch_start(integer total_number)
        string item = llGetInventoryName(INVENTORY_ALL, 0); // 0 means the first item in prim's inventory.
        string timestamp = llGetInventoryAcquireTime(item);
        llSay(0, "Timestamp for: " + item + " - " + timestamp); // output
