I have 2 TDateTime vars, and:

TDateTime1 has earlier date/time
TDateTime2 has later date/time

i need to calculate the difference between those two TDateTime vars and get the difference in seconds

for eg if the difference will become 2d 12h 30m 24s then the final int will be: 217,824 seconds

calculation from 2d 12h 30m 24s to seconds is not a problem, but i dont know how to get the difference between those TDateTime vars

please help

thx in advance
