Converting number of seconds to Hours:Minutes:Seconds
I just added one. So you give it a number of seconds and it gives back hours, mins, and secs into three variables. So that'll be in the next drop.

Thanks Dean, I look forward to trying it out!
At the risk of sounding like someone who is never satisfied, how about expanding it handle a value greater than 24 hours by including the number of days in the output. If you do, I promise I won't ask for the number of months if days > 30, etc. (although someone else might). :-D

There aren't enough action parameters for that, so I get to claim inability on that one.

Since I haven't installed CQC yet, I have absolutely no idea what you mean, so you get off easy this time. ;-)

My Fit-PC2 came in today, so as soon as I get a PS/2 to USB adapter for the old keyboard I have laying around, I will start configuring it. CQC installation is just around the corner.

So I just gave this a try, but ran into a little problem. I'm running 3.0.9.



    P3=medication timer status: %(LVar:int_elkM1_Counter_Hours)  %(LVar:int_elkM1_Counter_Minutes)  %(LVar:int_elkM1_Counter_Seconds)

But when I select the save button, an error popped up saying:
Parameters 1 of a 'CvtToElapsed' command is invalid. Reason='Expected an unsigned value'.

Any input would be appreciated, thanks!
It wants the actual value, not the name the variable, so dereference the variable, i.e. %(LVar:int_elkM1_Counter01). I think that's the problem.

Dean Roddey Wrote:OK, the problem is that, as mentioned before, if you set the value of a time field from a text value, as is happened in my example above, then it assumes it is a hex value, since times are always formatted out as hex. So 14000 is being taken as hex. If you pass in 0x36B0 as the initial value, which is 14000 in hex, then it works correctly.

If you are passing in the value of a time based field, then it should work correctly, since it'll get formatted out as text when it's set on the variable. It's just when it's being set like I did from a text string.

So anyway, here is what I ended up with. I think this is correct.

// The original count of seconds into a Time variable

// Convert to the standard 100ns time stamp form

// Pull out the separate time bits

// Format them out to a text widget
    P1=%(LVar:Hours)h, %(LVar:Mins)m, %(LVar:Secs)s

That results in

3h, 53m, 20s

I'm trying to reproduce your example and I getting only "000" into the output widget. I even tried to change the types of the LVar:Mins and LVar:Hours since the code didn't included it.

What I'm really trying to do is get the system time/date (not the 0x36B0) and stuff the parts into a string that will have the following format hhmmDDMMYY (hh - hour, mm - minutes, DD - day of the month, MM -month and YY is the year)
Use the System::FormatTimeVal() command. Pass it a time stamp and you can use the standard formatting pattern values.
