CDateTimeCtrl Problem

I have a Dialog based application. I added a CDateTimeCtrl to the Dialog template. I added a member variable to the Dialog class of Type CDateTimeCtrl as m_datetimectrlTest. (Using Class Wizard)

When I try to retrieve the time as(say in OnOk() )

CTime mytime;
m_datetimectrlTest.GetTime(time);

TRACE1("Time is %s\n",time.Format("%Hhr%Mmin%Ssec") );

Time is always showing 23 hr 59 min 13 sec ??!!

Can anyone give some hints what the problem could be?

here's my code to diaply the time and it works fine:

     CTime mytime;
     m_datetimectrlTest.GetTime(mytime);
     
     int Day = mytime.GetDay();
     int Month = mytime.GetMonth();
     int Year = mytime.GetYear();
     int Minute = mytime.GetMinute();
     int Hour = mytime.GetHour();
     int Second = mytime.GetSecond();

     CString strTime;
     strTime.Format("%d.%d.%d, %d::%d::%d", Month,Day,Year,Hour,Minute,Second);

     TRACE1("Time is %s\n", strTime);

any questions?

are you calling GetTime before or after CDialog::OnOK - I suggest before

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,

I also made a little test. The GetTime always returned a CTime with the current time and the
selected date. When I add time-values using CDateTimeCtrl::SetFormat() I can change the
time in the edit-control of the date-time-control and this modified time is returned by GetTime().

I tested this code on a few other machines..I worked fine on every machine except two!!
Could this be a problem with some library version or installation or something...

There is VC 6.0 on all the machines..
There is also comctl32 here.
Which version or which file should I look for?

I once found the value of the time under debug mode is different from that under release mode.
Under the debug mode ,the date and time is current date and time.But under the release mode, the date and time is 1980/1/1 00:00:00.

Try switching to using COleDateTime.  Eg,:
//---------------- in OnInitDialog
COleDateTime timeNow;
timeNow.GetCurrentTime();
m_datetimectrlTest.SetTime( timeNow );

//---------------- in OnOK or whenever...

COleDateTime timeInput;
m_datetimectrlTest.GetTime( timeInput );

TRACE1("Time is %d:%d.%d\n",
   timeInput.GetHour(),
   timeInput.GetMinute(),
   timeInput.GetSecond()
);
