Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-4596) Documentation is not consistent for timestamp types
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2013 23:27:56 GMT
Peter created CB-4596:
-------------------------

             Summary: Documentation is not consistent for timestamp types
                 Key: CB-4596
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-4596
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Docs
    Affects Versions: 2.9.0
            Reporter: Peter
            Assignee: Michael Brooks
            Priority: Minor


Compare Codova documentation for these timestamps:
* Accelerometer > *Acceleration.timestamp* -  _timestamp: Creation timestamp in milliseconds.
(DOMTimeStamp)_ 
* Compass > *CompassHeading.timestamp* - _timestamp: The time at which this heading was
determined. (milliseconds)_ 
* Geolocation > *Position.timestamp* - _timestamp: Creation timestamp for coords. (Date)_


It is confusing that documentation describes all these "timestamps" to have different types.

On closer inspection, for some reason the Position.timestamp really is (inconsistent with
the others) returned as a Date object.

But at least Acceleration/Compass ones seem to have same units so perhaps the documentation
for those ones ought to consistently say they are DOMTimeStamp.
