Remarks

Managing the seconds

  • Case 1: Direct assignment
    During a direct assignment (for example, MyWork.MyDateTime.Second = n), the seconds must be found between 00 and 59. A WLanguage error occurs if an invalid number of seconds is specified.
    The notation MyWork.MyDateTime.Second= MyWork.MyDateTime.Second + 5 may generate a runtime error.
  • Case 2: Operations on the seconds
    When performing operations on the Date items (in 'Date and Time' or 'Duration' format), the seconds are included between 00 and 59. The addition or the subtraction of seconds automatically takes into account the changes from 59 seconds to 1 minute.

Operators available for the seconds

The following arithmetic operators can be used with the Second property:
  • ++ and --
  • += and -=
// Example on an item
Work.StartDateTime = "200411261324320"
Work.StartDateTime.Second++     // Add 1 second
Work.StartDateTime.Second+=5  // Add 5 seconds
Work.StartDateTime.Second-=5  // Subtract 5 seconds
Minimum version required
  • Version 9
