Hello all -

I was wondering how to implement the GetLocalTime function in VC++.  I looked at Microsoft documentation and cannont understand it.  Can someone give me an example snippet where I can pull the hour and minutes? Maybe AM or PM?  Is it in int array format?

Thank you for trying to help

 SYSTEMTIME st;
  GetLocalTime(&st);
  cout << st.wHour << ":" << st.wMinute << " " << am_pm << endl;


You can use the fact that  wHour is > 12 to determine the AM/PM stuff.  Hope this helps.

the better way is to use the following combintion

 GetLocalTime(&st)
   GetDateFormat(0,DATE_SHORTDATE,&st,NULL,date,sizeof(date));
   GetTimeFormat(0,LOCALE_NOUSEROVERRIDE,&st,NULL,time,sizeof(time));

where date and time r string buffers.....
