How to Convert Seconds to HOURS:MINUTES:SECONDS

Recommended Posts

subfighter

i been looking in the help file and trying to figure out on how to convert duration of time from seconds to HH:MM:SS

for example the durations are all stored in seconds

175

so how would i convert it hours:minutes:seconds so it would display the 175 seconds like the example below

00:02:55

any help appreciated.

thanks

try this

MsgBox(262144, '', Sec2Time(175))
Func Sec2Time($nr_sec)
   $sec2time_hour = Int($nr_sec / 3600)
   $sec2time_min = Int(($nr_sec - $sec2time_hour * 3600) / 60)
   $sec2time_sec = $nr_sec - $sec2time_hour * 3600 - $sec2time_min * 60
   Return StringFormat('%02d:%02d:%02d', $sec2time_hour, $sec2time_min, $sec2time_sec)
EndFunc   ;==>Sec2Time

I like that script psandu.ro...I use this when writing an encoding log to show the total time the process took

;Usage Example
MsgBox(0,'Time Difference is:',  _FormatElapsedTime(175))   ;minutes
MsgBox(0,'Time Difference is:',  _FormatElapsedTime(38000)) ;hours
MsgBox(0,'Time Difference is:',  _FormatElapsedTime(450684))    ;days


Func _FormatElapsedTime($Input_Seconds)
  If $Input_Seconds < 1 Then Return
  Global $ElapsedMessage = ''
  Global $Input = $Input_Seconds
  Switch $Input_Seconds
    Case 0 To 59
      GetSeconds()
    Case 60 To 3599
      GetMinutes()
      GetSeconds()
    Case 3600 To 86399
      GetHours()
      GetMinutes()
      GetSeconds()
    Case Else
      GetDays()
      GetHours()
      GetMinutes()
      GetSeconds()
  EndSwitch
  Return $ElapsedMessage
EndFunc   ;==>FormatElapsedTime

Func GetDays()
  $Days = Int($Input / 86400)
  $Input -= ($Days * 86400)
  $ElapsedMessage &= $Days & ' days, '
  Return $ElapsedMessage
EndFunc   ;==>GetDays

Func GetHours()
  $Hours = Int($Input / 3600)
  $Input -= ($Hours * 3600)
  $ElapsedMessage &= $Hours & ' hours, '
  Return $ElapsedMessage
EndFunc   ;==>GetHours

Func GetMinutes()
  $Minutes = Int($Input / 60)
  $Input -= ($Minutes * 60)
  $ElapsedMessage &= $Minutes & ' minutes, '
  Return $ElapsedMessage
EndFunc   ;==>GetMinutes

Func GetSeconds()
  $ElapsedMessage &= Int($Input) & ' seconds.'
  Return $ElapsedMessage
EndFunc   ;==>GetSeconds

CODE
; enter the number of seconds below that will be converted to hh:mm:ss

$sec = 278 ;seconds

; there are 3600 seconds in an hour, so if we divide total seconds by 3600 and throw away the remainder, we've got the number of hours

$Hours = int(int($sec) / 3600)

If $Hours < 10 Then $Hours = "0" & $Hours

; dividing the total seconds by 60 will give us the number of minutes, but we're interested in minutes past the hour: to get that, we need to divide by 60 again and keep the remainder

$Minutes1 = int($sec / 60)

$Minutes = int(mod ($Minutes1, 60))

If $Minutes < 10 Then $Minutes = "0" & $Minutes

; seconds are simple - just divide the total seconds by 60 and keep the remainder

$seconds = mod ($sec, 60)

If $seconds < 10 Then $seconds = "0" & $seconds

MsgBox (4096, "Seconds Converted to HH:MM:SS", $Hours & ":" & $Minutes & ":" & $seconds)

I figured it out from some PHP examples and my own touches but I think your is cleaner and leaner as it less lines of code psandu.ro

thanks again for your help..

CODE
$sec2time_hour = Int($vid_duration / 3600)

$sec2time_min = Int(($vid_duration - $sec2time_hour * 3600) / 60)

$sec2time_sec = $vid_duration - $sec2time_hour * 3600 - $sec2time_min * 60

$vid_duration = StringFormat('%02d:%02d:%02d', $sec2time_hour, $sec2time_min, $sec2time_sec)

thanks i added your 4 lines of code above slightly modified and it worked great... thanks again for your help.
