There's more in a TDateTime than just seconds. There are milliseconds in it, too. And they are not included in the string.

if you want to use milisecond for any kind of comparison or
just random numbers then use DecodeTime...

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);

var
  Present: TDateTime;
  Hour, Min, Sec, MSec: Word;
 begin
  Present:= Now;    {or the variable that you want...}
  DecodeTime(Present, Hour, Min, Sec, MSec);
  Label2.Caption := 'The time is Minute ' + IntToStr(Min) + ' of Hour ' + IntToStr(Hour);
end;


good luck,
luis
