MyDate is Date = DateSys()
EDT_Date = MyDate.ToDayInAlpha() + " " + MyDate.Day + ...
" " + MyDate.ToMonthInAlpha() + " at " + ...
TimeToString(TimeSys(), "HH:MM:SS")
// The EDT_Date control contains for example: Monday 13 August at 14:44:17
<Result> = <Date>.ToMonthInAlpha()
<Result>: Character string
Month corresponding to the specified date: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December.
Remark: The month returned depends on the language options specified for dates in the "Languages" tab of the project description (on the "Project" tab, in the "Project" group, click "Description"):
  • If the project uses the linguistic options of Windows for the dates, the month will be returned in the language of Windows.
  • If the project uses specific parameters for the dates (for one or more languages), the month returned will correspond to the one specified in the project description.
<Date>: Date variable or DateTime variable
Date to use. This date can correspond to:
  • a Date variable.
  • a DateTime variable. In this case, only the date is taken into account.
The date storage format allows you to store dates from 01/01/0001 to 12/31/9999.
WLanguage functions and WLanguage properties make accurate calculations on dates from January 1st, 1583.
