Frequently Asked Questions

  • I want to add my own data to the Timeline?

    As part of the timeline, we have developed an API which lets you add any data you wish. This data can either be a duration event or a moment in time event. Here we show an example of each:


//For duration events
using (GlimpseTimeline.Capture("Event..."))

//For snapshot events

Note: The GlimpseTimeline API was introduced in v2+
