How to get system time format in time stamp

Hello All,
I have one problem regarding Time stamp. I want system time stamp format in Time control. If my system date/time format change then automatically my time stamp format should also change.If my system Time stamp format is hh:mm:ss AM/PM dd/mm/yy so in my LabVIEW time stamp format should also same. If System time stamp format hh:mm:ss AM/PM mm/dd/yyyy so in my LabVIEW time stamp format should also same.
So Please help me its a very important for my automation application.
Thank You.

Hi Vinal,
have you tried the FormatDateTimeString function with a standard string indicator and the "%c" formatcode as described in the help instead of the generic timestamp indicator?
Best regards,

Kudos are welcome

  • How to get system date and time?

    Can someone show me a code on how to get system date and time.
    Thanks!

    there is one really easy way to get system time, the api gives a great example of code on this. use gregorian calendar, which you'll find in the api under GregorianCalendar. You only need to create one instance of GC, ie Calendar time = new GregorianCalendar();
    you save seconds, minute and hours into int values, so you don't have to access the system time every second, you can create a thread which adds one to the int second value, if oyu see what i mean, for example, i have saved the hours, minutes and seconds as int values;
    int hour, minute, second;
    i can then create a thread (Thread thread = new Thread(this) and run it like:
    Calendar time;
    int hour, minute, second;
    Thread thread = null;
    public MyTime() {
    hour= time.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY);
    minute = time.get(Calendar.MINUTE);
    second = time.get(Calendar.SECOND);
    if(thread == null) {
    thread = new Thread(this);
    thread.start();
    public void run() {
    Thread t = Thread.currentThread();
    while(thread == t) {
    thread.sleep(1000);
    second++;
    if(second > 59)
    minute++;
    if(minute>59)
    hour++;
    formatTime();
    public void formatTime() {
    second = (second > 59? 0 : second);
    minute = (minute > 59? 0 : minute);
    hour = (hour > 23? 0 : hour);
    System.out.println(hour+":"+minute+":"+second);
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    new MyTime();
    I know this looks like gibberish but it should work. If not, try to fix the problem, i have written from memory really but i guarantee you, this gets the time then every second, simply adds one to the second and then formats time. You can also access the day, month and year then format them using the above code. I don't like giving code since you should really do these things yourself but it is 2:04am, i have nothing better to do and i am not tired so i did you a favour - i have become what i always did not want to, someone ho stays upall night writing code.

    the moment you ask the system for its idle time that idle time becomes 0, so just returning a constant value of 0 would always yield the correct answer.But when you don't call this constant method the value it would return is wrong.

    Or were you thinking of philosphical problems like "what does a method do when it's not called?"?Actually I was trying to see if I could get the OP to say boo to a goose.

  • How to Check System Preference Settings with Time Machine

    I just found and fixed a problem caused by a bad System Preference/Universal Access
    setting and would like to go back in my Time Machine backup to see where the
    error was made. I may have been too quick to blame the 10.5.3 update on the
    problem so wanted to look back in time.
    The problem is i don't know how to check System Preferences using the Time Machine.
    Any suggestion?

    If you're looking for specific settings, the short answer is you cannot. You can open the .plist files and try to find the specific option you're looking for, though it might not be too easy to decipher some of the contents of the .plist file. For the most part they're just lists of attributes and settings. For instance, here's a very small chunk of my Finder .plist file:
    <key>All Images.cannedSearch</key>
    <dict>
         <key>SidebarWidth</key>
         <integer>162</integer>
         <key>ToolbarVisible</key>
         <true/>
         <key>ViewHeight</key>
         <integer>1116</integer>
         <key>ViewStyle</key>
         <string>icnv</string>
         <key>WindowBounds</key>
         <dict>
              <key>bottom</key>
              <integer>1200</integer>
              <key>left</key>
              <integer>56</integer>
              <key>right</key>
              <integer>1920</integer>
              <key>top</key>
              <integer>84</integer>
         </dict>
    </dict>
    <key>AnimateInfoPanes</key>
    <true/>
    <key>AnimateSnapToGrid</key>
    <string>true</string>
    <key>AnimateWindowZoom</key>
    <true/>
    Each "key" is followed by an attribute, so for instance the "SideBar Width" key is given the "Width" integer attribute of 162. However, some keys have multiple entries, such as the "WindowBounds" key having sub-keys of "bottom", "left", "right", and "top".
    These values are finder preferences, though are not accessible via the finder's preference settings. However, buried deep in the Finder's .plist file are some of the user-editable settings:
    <key>ShowHardDrivesOnDesktop</key>
    <true/>
    <key>ShowMountedServersOnDesktop</key>
    <true/>
    <key>SidebarSearchesSectionDisclosedState</key>
    <false/>
    If you can find the attribute you're looking for, then that may help you narrow down which version of a .plist file to restore, though not all of them are straightforward legible text. Some have bizarre strings of seemingly random characters that only the application can interpret.

  • How do I get System.out.format to print out doubles with the same precision

    Using the System.out.format, how do I print out the value of a double such that it looks exactly like it does if it were print from a System.out.println.
    For example, take the following code:
    double d = 12.48564734342343;       
    System.out.format("d as format: %f\n", d);
    System.out.println("d as   sout: " + d);Running the code, I get:
    <font face="courier">
    d as format: 12.485647
    d as sout: 12.48564734342343
    </font>
    The precision of d has been lost.
    I could bump up the precision as follows:
    double d = 12.48564734342343;
    System.out.format("d as format: %.14f\n", d);
    System.out.println("d as   sout: " + d);That appears to work, I get:
    <font face="courier">
    d as format: 12.48564734342343
    d as sout: 12.48564734342343
    </font>
    However, that solution fails if d has a different precision, say 12.48. In that case I get:
    <font face="courier">
    d as format: 12.48000000000000
    d as sout: 12.48
    </font>
    So how do I get System.out.format to print out doubles with the same precision as System.out.println?
    Thanks..

    Interesting, but this is not what I am looking for...Your original question was "how do I print out the value of a double such that it looks exactly like it does if it were print from a System.out.println", and you've been told how to do that (although the pattern given by sabre may be a bit excessive - you should only need 15 '#'s).The initial phrase from my question was "Using the System.out.format, how do I..".
    It's worth remembering that, unlike the Format hierarchy, 'format()' is NOT native to Java. It's a convenience implementation of the 'printf()' and 'sprintf()' methods provided in C, and first appeared in Java 1.5. Those methods were designed to produced fixed-format output; 'println()' was not.Perhaps it is the case that this can't be done.
    Furthermore, Double.toString(), which is what is used by println() does not produce the same format in all cases; format("%.14f\n", d) does. TrySystem.out.println(1.8236473845783d);
    System.out.println(1823647384.5783d);and you'll see what I mean.I am fine with that. It still displays all the precision.
    I am simply looking for a way to quickly print out multiple variables on a sysout while debugging. I want it as syntactically sweet as possible. System.out.println can be a pain when outputting multiple variables like the following:
    "System.out.println("a: " + a + "; b:" + b + "; c: " + c);"
    For some reason, my fingers always typo the plus key.
    I was hoping that System.out.format would be easier,along the lines of:
    "System.out.format("a: %f, b: %f, c: %f\n", a, b, c);"
    From a syntactical sweetness point of view, it is easier. However, the %f on doubles truncates the precision. I figured there must be a way to get the full precision.
    DecimalFormat is syntactically sour for this purpose, as you need to instantiate the DecimalFormat.
    fwiw I have enjoyed reading the suggestions in this thread...

  • How to Sync System Clock with Internet Time in Windows 7?

    "Internet Time" tab is missing in Clock Settings as shown in below link.
    http://mintywhite.com/windows-7/7maintenance/windows-seven-7-sync-system-clock-with-internet-time-how-to/
    Please suggest how to Sync System Clock with Internet Time in Windows 7?
    Regards, Dharmendra, Bangalore (India)

    The note at the bottom of the first link from Alex Verboon has the following, which worked on my Domain-associated Windows 7 system:
    Synchronizing with an Internet time server
    You can synchronize your computer clock with an Internet time server. This means that the clock on your computer is updated to match the clock on the time server, which can help ensure that the clock on your computer is accurate. Your clock is typically updated
    once a week and needs to be connected to the Internet for the synchronization to occur.
    Note
    If your computer is on a domain, you can't synchronize your clock with an Internet time server.
    Open Date and Time by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Clock, Language, and Region, and then clicking Date and Time.
    Click the Internet Time tab, and then click Change settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Click Automatically synchronize with an Internet time server, select a time server, and then click OK.

    How to get system date year and do the substring / concate ?
    So dimension category source will be PLAN_<YYYY>, destination = FORECAST_<YYYY>
    Dimension source = <YYYY>.JAN,<YYYY>.FEB,<YYYY>.MAR,<YYYY>.APR,<YYYY>.MAY,<YYYY>.JUN,<YYYY>.JUL,<YYYY>.AUG,<YYYY>.SEP,<YYYY>.OCT,<YYYY>.NOV,<YYYY>.DEC
    Depend on year system date.
    Thank you.

    Stuart,How are you storing OnSaleDate. If you are using OnSaleDate as an attribute dimension then you can write a Custom Defined Function to either:1- query your system for the current date and return the number of seconds that have elapsed since 1/1/1970. This is by definition the begining of the Epoch and how Essbase treats Attribute Dimensions of the Date type.public static long getDateInSeconds() {           Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();           return cal.getTime().getTime()/1000;}2- Write a Custom Defined Function that will accept the OnSaleDate and return the number of days sincepublic static double daysSince(double myDate) {     return (getDateInSeconds()-myDate )/86400;}

  • How to get system Environment variable?

    How to get system Environment variable without using jni?
    just like "JAVA_HOME" or "PATH"...
    Any reply is help to me!! :-)

    Thx for your reply...
    I get it!!!
    Read environment variables from an application
    Start the JVM with the "-D" switch to pass properties to the application and read them with the System.getProperty() method. SET myvar=Hello world
    SET myothervar=nothing
    java -Dmyvar="%myvar%" -Dmyothervar="%myothervar%" myClass
    then in myClass String myvar = System.getProperty("myvar");
    String myothervar = System.getProperty("myothervar");
    This is useful when using a JAVA program as a CGI.
    (DOS bat file acting as a CGI) java -DREQUEST_METHOD="%REQUEST_METHOD%"
    -DQUERY_STRING="%QUERY_STRING%"
    javaCGI
    If you don't know in advance, the name of the variable to be passed to the JVM, then there is no 100% Java way to retrieve them.
    NOTE: JDK1.5 provides a way to achieve this, see this HowTo.
    One approach (not the easiest one), is to use a JNI call to fetch the variables, see this HowTo.
    A more low-tech way, is to launch the appropriate call to the operating system and capture the output. The following snippet puts all environment variables in a Properties class and display the value the TEMP variable. import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;
    public class ReadEnv {
    public static Properties getEnvVars() throws Throwable {
    Process p = null;
    Properties envVars = new Properties();
    Runtime r = Runtime.getRuntime();
    String OS = System.getProperty("os.name").toLowerCase();
    // System.out.println(OS);
    if (OS.indexOf("windows 9") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( "command.com /c set" );
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1 )
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    // thanks to JuanFran for the xp fix!
    p = r.exec( "cmd.exe /c set" );
    else {
    // our last hope, we assume Unix (thanks to H. Ware for the fix)
    p = r.exec( "env" );
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader
    ( new InputStreamReader( p.getInputStream() ) );
    String line;
    while( (line = br.readLine()) != null ) {
    int idx = line.indexOf( '=' );
    String key = line.substring( 0, idx );
    String value = line.substring( idx+1 );
    envVars.setProperty( key, value );
    // System.out.println( key + " = " + value );
    return envVars;
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    try {
    Properties p = ReadEnv.getEnvVars();
    System.out.println("the current value of TEMP is : " +
    p.getProperty("TEMP"));
    catch (Throwable e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    Thanks to W.Rijnders for the W2K fix.
    An update from Van Ly :
    I found that, on Windows 2003 server, the property value for "os.name" is actually "windows 2003." So either that has to be added to the bunch of tests or just relax the comparison strings a bit: else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1 )
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2003") > -1 ) // works but is quite specific to 2003
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 20") > -1 ) // probably is better since no other OS would return "windows" anyway
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    I started with "windows 200" but thought "what the hell" and made it "windows 20" to lengthen its longivity. You could push it further and use "windows 2," I suppose. The only thing to watch out for is to not overlap with "windows 9."
    On Windows, pre-JDK 1.2 JVM has trouble reading the Output stream directly from the SET command, it never returns. Here 2 ways to bypass this behaviour.
    First, instead of calling directly the SET command, we use a BAT file, after the SET command we print a known string. Then, in Java, when we read this known string, we exit from loop. [env.bat]
    @set
    @echo **end
    [java]
    if (OS.indexOf("windows") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( "env.bat" );
    while( (line = br.readLine()) != null ) {
    if (line.indexOf("**end")>-1) break;
    int idx = line.indexOf( '=' );
    String key = line.substring( 0, idx );
    String value = line.substring( idx+1 );
    hash.put( key, value );
    System.out.println( key + " = " + value );
    The other solution is to send the result of the SET command to file and then read the file from Java. ...
    if (OS.indexOf("windows 9") > -1) {
    p = r.exec( "command.com /c set > envvar.txt" );
    else if ( (OS.indexOf("nt") > -1)
    || (OS.indexOf("windows 2000") > -1
    || (OS.indexOf("windows xp") > -1) ) {
    // thanks to JuanFran for the xp fix!
    p = r.exec( "cmd.exe /c set > envvar.txt" );
    // then read back the file
    Properties p = new Properties();
    p.load(new FileInputStream("envvar.txt"));
    Thanks to JP Daviau
    // UNIX
    public Properties getEnvironment() throws java.io.IOException {
    Properties env = new Properties();
    env.load(Runtime.getRuntime().exec("env").getInputStream());
    return env;
    Properties env = getEnvironment();
    String myEnvVar = env.get("MYENV_VAR");
    To read only one variable : // NT version , adaptation for other OS is left as an exercise...
    Process p = Runtime.getRuntime().exec("cmd.exe /c echo %MYVAR%");
    BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader
    ( new InputStreamReader( p.getInputStream() ) );
    String myvar = br.readLine();
    System.out.println(myvar);
    Java's System properties contains some useful informations about the environment, for example, the TEMP and PATH environment variables (on Windows). public class ShowSome {
    public static void main(String args[]){
    System.out.println("TEMP : " + System.getProperty("java.io.tmpdir"));
    System.out.println("PATH : " + System.getProperty("java.library.path"));
    System.out.println("CLASSPATH : " + System.getProperty("java.class.path"));
    System.out.println("SYSTEM DIR : " +
    System.getProperty("user.home")); // ex. c:\windows on Win9x system
    System.out.println("CURRENT DIR: " + System.getProperty("user.dir"));
    Here some tips from H. Ware about the PATH on different OS.
    PATH is not quite the same as library path. In unixes, they are completely different---the libraries typically have their own directories. System.out.println("the current value of PATH is: {" +
    p.getProperty("PATH")+"}");
    System.out.println("LIBPATH: {" +
    System.getProperty("java.library.path")+"}");
    gives the current value of PATH is:
    {/home/hware/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/xpg4/bin:/opt/SUNWspro/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:

  • How to get system time from cRIO?

    Hello,
    I have an NI cRIO-9076 chassis with an NI-9467 GPS module and an NI-9234 module.
    I've downloaded the FPGA Timekeeper application which synchronises the FPGA clock to the 1PPS GPS, this works well.  What I want to do is create a trigger that at a pre-defined HH:MMS the system will start to acquire and log data from the Accelerometers connected to the NI-9234 module.
    I have added the controls for the entry of the HH:MMS and calculated the time in seconds.  I would like to compare the system clock once it is locked to the entered timestamp and then trigger.
    As I only have a value that represents seconds in the day I need to calculate the offset from EPOCH to compare against the GPS time reference.  I have read that the NI system clock runs from 01/01/1904 instead of the EPOCH 01/01/1970.
    The question is how do I get the current system time so that I can compare it against the entered time?  I only need seconds in the day = (HH * 3600) + (MM * 60) + (SS)

    You should use the Get Date/Time in Seconds VI which will return a timestamp. You can then format this timestamp using the Format Date/Time String to give you exactly the time format that you need. Then you can extract the numbers you need and do your math.

  • How to get System time during report generation?

    Hi,
    I am developing a template in which I am required to show data of current year only. Is there any method by which I can get system time(from which I will extract year) ?

    Thanks,
    I already have found it on page 260 of oracle bi publisher guide.
    sysdate() <?xdofx:sysdate()?> SYSDATE returns the current date and time.
    The datatype of the returned value is DATE.
    The function requires no arguments.
