(This is the documentation for SDL3, which is under heavy development and the API is changing! SDL2 is the current stable version!)


Converts a calendar time to an SDL_Time in nanoseconds since the epoch.

Header File

Defined in <SDL3/SDL_time.h>


int SDL_DateTimeToTime(const SDL_DateTime *dt, SDL_Time *ticks);

Function Parameters

const SDL_DateTime * dt the source SDL_DateTime.
SDL_Time * ticks the resulting SDL_Time.

Return Value

(int) Returns 0 on success or a negative error code on failure; call SDL_GetError() for more information.


This function ignores the day_of_week member of the SDL_DateTime struct, so it may remain unset.


This function is available since SDL 3.0.0.
