Syntax

Finding out the system date Hide the details

<Result> = DateSys()
<Result>: Character string or Date variable
System date in YYYYMMDD format (YYYY corresponds to the year, MM to the month and DD to the day).

Modifying the system date Hide the details

DateSys(<New Date>)
<New Date>: Character string or Date variable
New system date in YYYYMMDD format (YYYY corresponds to the year, MM to the month and DD to the day).
Remarks
  • To get the date in a format other than YYYYMMDD, you must format the string (with DateToString, Right, Left) or use the properties on the dates. The YYYYMMDD format was chosen because it allows you to check the chronology between two dates, while this would not be possible with a date in YYYYDDMM format or in YYMMDD format for example.
  • On all the current systems, the year of the system date can be included between 1980 and 2099.
  • Caution: To modify the system date, you must have the administrator rights on the current computer.
  • WEBDEV - Browser codeLinuxAndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadJavaPHP In this version, DateSys can only be used to return the system date (today's date defined for the current computer or on the browser computer).
  • AndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadWindows Mobile In simulation mode, the date of the PC is used. At run time, the date of the mobile device is used.

WinDev for a Windows application: beware of user privileges!
When trying to set the computer's clock to a certain date / time, the functions DateSys("20151231") or TimeSys("18:00:00") will not return an error code if the computer's clock is not set (mostly because of missing admin rights). If you wish to be able to act on a returned error then use the API SetSystemTime.
