How can I increment the current DateTime with a x amount of seconds? So for example I want to have a TDateTime of Now + 30 secs returning a TDateTime. Remember that if the current time is lets say 20 secs away from the hour it should increment the hour as well. The same with the day if it's a couple of seconds away from the end of the day. Thanx in advance.

No, sorry that doesn't work. It doesn't increment now with that number of seconds.
