Remarks

Managing the minutes and the hours

Case 1: Direct assignment
During a direct assignment (for example, MyTime.Minute = n), the minutes must be included between 00 and 59. A WLanguage error occurs if an invalid number of minutes is specified.
The syntax MyTime.Minute = MyTime.Minute + 5 may generate an error at run time.
Case 2: Operations on the minutes
When performing operations on Time and DateTime, variables, hours go from 0 to 23, and minutes go from 0 to 59. The addition or subtraction of minutes automatically takes into account the changes from 59 minutes to the next hour.
Therefore, if 50 minutes are added to:
  • a variable of type Time corresponding to 23:35, the result will be 0:25.
  • a DateTime variable, the hour and the number of minutes will be modified (an hour will be added).
// Example on a variable
StartTime is Time = "2335"  
StartTime.Minute += 50
// StartTime corresponds to 0:25
 
StartTime is DateTime = "202011262335"
StartTime.Minute += 50
// StratTime corresponds to 27/11/2020 at 0:25

Operators available for the minutes

The following arithmetic operators can be used with the Minute property:
  • ++ and --
  • += and -=
// Example on an item
Work.StartTime = "1320"
Work.StartTime.Minute++     // Add 1 minute
Work.StartTime.Minute+=5     // Add 5 minutes
Work.StartTime.Minute-=5 // Subtract 5 minutes
Minimum version required
  • Version 9
