Hi, in C Builder, there's a command like FormatGMT

Does Delphi have something like that?

If not, is there anyone who can tell me how to format date for GMT.

Find out your local time offset (ie: in NewZealand our normal time off set is 12 hours ahead of GMT) and apply this offset to the time given to you by Time (or just use GetSystemTime which returns UTC time which is equivalent to GMT). Then just format this as a normal date.

Cheers,

Raymond.

Can you write down the source?

Because i can't get the Api Call structure properly.

And i've tried to use GetTimeZoneInformation.

Write the complete source for all this.

Function GetFormatGMTTime : String;

var
  SystemTime : TSystemTime;
  GMTTime : TDateTime;

begin
  GetSystemTime(SystemTime);
  GMTTime := SystemTimeToDateTime(SystemTime);

// Format GMTTime any way you want... eg:
  Result := FormatDateTime('hh:mm:ss', GMTTime);
end;
