The Format Date/Time String function displays a timestamp value or a numeric value as time in the format you specify using time format codes.
This function calculates date/time string by copying time format string and replacing each of the time format codes with the corresponding values. For example, the time format string
%y%m%d displays timestamp in the format
yymmdd. The time format string
%y%m%d displays the date January 30, 2014 as 140130.
The following list describes some of the caveats to consider when you use this function:
- LabVIEW returns abbreviated weekday and month names as numeric values for systems that do not support abbreviated names, such as Chinese and Korean.
%Z format codes depend on operating system locale support. The output of these codes is platform dependent. Interpretation of the Daylight Saving Time rule also can vary by platform.
%p format code only takes effect at locales that use the 12-hour time system.
- Time format codes have leading zeros as necessary to ensure a constant field width. An optional # modifier before the format code letter removes the leading zeros from the following format codes:
%#Y. The # modifier does not modify the behavior of any other format codes.
