Check universal time

3 posts in this topic

Is there anyway to check an universal time (not the time on your machine) from a time server?

What time server do you know, how to contact it and how to get data from it?

trung0407,

I use this to get the local time:

#include <String.au3>
#include <INet.au3>

$iErrorCount = 0

While 1

    $iPing = Ping("www.uhrzeit.org")

    If @error Then
        TrayTip("Date Time Checker", "Connection Failed" & @CRLF & "Retrying in 5 secs", 5)
        Sleep(5000)
        $iErrorCount += 1
        If $iErrorCount > 10 Then
            TrayTip("Date Time Checker", "No Connection" & @CRLF & "Exiting....", 5)
            Sleep(5000)
            Exit
        EndIf
    Else
        TrayTip("Date Time Checker", "Connected" & @CRLF & "Reading date and time", 5)
        Sleep(2000)
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
WEnd

$sSource = _INetGetSource('http://www.uhrzeit.org/atomuhr.html')

$aTime = _StringBetween($sSource, '<div id="anzeige_zeit">', '</div>')
$aTime = StringSplit($aTime[0], ":")
$iSec = $aTime[3]
$iMin = $aTime[2]
$iHr  = $aTime[1] - 1
If $iHr = -1 Then $iHr = 23

$aDate = _StringBetween($sSource, '<div id="anzeige_datum">', '</div>')
$aDate = StringSplit($aDate[0], " ")

$sYear = $aDate[4]
$sDate = StringTrimRight($aDate[2], 1)
$iMonth = 0

Switch $aDate[3]
    Case "Januar"
        $iMonth = 1
    Case "Februar"
        $iMonth = 2
    Case "März"
        $iMonth = 3
    Case "April"
        $iMonth = 4
    Case "Mai"
        $iMonth = 5
    Case "Juni"
        $iMonth = 6
    Case "Juli"
        $iMonth = 7
    Case "August"
        $iMonth = 8
    Case "August"
        $iMonth = 9
    Case "Oktober"
        $iMonth = 10
    Case "November"
        $iMonth = 11
    Case "Dezember"
        $iMonth = 12
EndSwitch

TrayTip("Date Time Checker", "", 1)
MsgBox(0, "Now!", $iHr & ":" & $iMin & ":" & $iSec & @CRLF & $sDate & "/" & $iMonth & "/" & $sYear)

and _Date_Time_GetTimeZoneInformation to work out "The current bias for local time translation on this computer".

Seems to work quite well! ;)
