Returns or modifies the system time (current time defined for the current computer).

Example
Res = TimeSys()        // Res = "15332105"
Res = TimeToString(TimeSys())   // Res = "15:33:21:05"
HeureAct = Left(TimeSys(), 4)    // HeureAct = "1533"
Reports and Queries
// Afficher l'heure actuelle dans le champ HeureActuelle
 
// -- Code d'initialisation d'une fenêtre/page
// Appeler toutes les secondes la procédure "Horloge"

// -- Procédure Horloge
PROCÉDURE Horloge()
HeureActuelle = TimeToString(TimeSys())
Reports and Queries
// Change l'heure système et affiche la nouvelle heure
TimeSys("17280000")

Syntax

Getting the system time Hide the details

<Result> = TimeSys()
<Result>: Character string or Time variable
System time in HHMMSSCC format (HH corresponds to hours, MM to minutes, SS to seconds and CC to hundredths of a second).
Reports and Queries

Modifying the system time Hide the details

TimeSys(<New time>)
<New time>: Character string, Date or DateTime variable
New system time. This time can correspond to:
  • a character string in HHMMSSCC format (HH corresponds to hours, MM to minutes, SS to seconds and CC to hundredths of a second).
  • Versions 24 and later
    a character string in YYYYMMDDHHmmSSCC format (YYYY corresponds to the year, MM to the month, DD to the day, HH to hours, mm to minutes, SS to seconds and CC to hundredths of a second). In this case, only the time is taken into account.
    New in version 24
    a character string in YYYYMMDDHHmmSSCC format (YYYY corresponds to the year, MM to the month, DD to the day, HH to hours, mm to minutes, SS to seconds and CC to hundredths of a second). In this case, only the time is taken into account.
    a character string in YYYYMMDDHHmmSSCC format (YYYY corresponds to the year, MM to the month, DD to the day, HH to hours, mm to minutes, SS to seconds and CC to hundredths of a second). In this case, only the time is taken into account.
  • a Time variable.
  • Versions 24 and later

    a DateTime variable. In this case, only the time is taken into account.
Remarks
  • Caution: To modify the system time, you must have the administrator rights on the current computer.
  • To get the time in a format other than HHMMSSCC, the string must be formatted using DateToString, Right, Left, etc.
  • The HHMMSSCC format was chosen because it allows you to compare two times with hundredths-of-a-second accuracy.
