Time

 

 

The Time function accepts a string constant or string variable representing a time and converts it into a number.  Time are internally stored as a real number,normally ranging between 0 and 24.  The Time function accepts the string representation of the time in several formats as illustrated in the following example.

 

 

After running this program, the Arrays table will appear showing the numerical equivalent of the entered values of time.  The entries are displayed as decimal because the display format for the Time array is initially set to Auto, which is a numerical format..

 

 

The values in the table can be displayed in a chosen time format.  To change the display format for the values in any table, right click in the header cell column and select Properties from the popup menu.  The Format Arrays Table dialog will appear.  Use the arrow in the Style box to change the format style to Time.  Then select a time format from the control to the right of the Style box.
