Returns or modifies the system time (current time defined for the current computer).
Remark: This function is equivalent to Now.
Example
Res = TimeSys()        // Res = "15332105"
Res = TimeToString(TimeSys())   // Res = "15:33:21:05"
CurrentTime = Left(TimeSys(), 4)  // CurrentTime = "1533"

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).
WEBDEV - Browser code System time in HHMMSSCCC format (HH corresponds to hours, MM to minutes, SS to seconds and CCC to hundredths of a second).

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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • WEBDEV - Server code The system time corresponds to the current time defined on the server.
  • WEBDEV - Browser codeUniversal Windows 10 AppAndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadIOS WidgetApple WatchMac CatalystPHP In this version, TimeSys can only be used to return the system time (time on the current computer or on the computer on which the Internet browser is running).
  • Universal Windows 10 AppAndroidAndroid Widget iPhone/iPadIOS WidgetApple WatchMac Catalyst In simulation mode, the time used is the time on the PC where the simulation is run. At runtime, the time of the mobile device is used.
