cDateTime

 

A cDateTime Class contains a date and time value, allowing easy calculations.

 
The internal representation emulates the Windows FILETIME structure as a quad-integer.
This value represents the number of 100-nanosecond intervals since January 1, 1601. A nanosecond is one-billionth of a second.

 

You create a cDateTime object the following way:

 

Dim MyTime AS cDateTime

MyTyme = New cDateTime

 

Or

 

Dim MyTime AS New cDateTime

 

Once you have created a cDateTime object, you can manipulate it using the its methods and properties.

By default a new a cDateTime object will contain the current local date and time on this computer
