Read-Write Property String

Applies To

The property is applied to the following object:

Property Value

The string used to convert time values to a string.

By default, LongTimeFormat holds the value specified by Regional Settings in the Windows Control Panel. To restore this value, call the GetFormatSettings method.


Utilities.LongTimeFormat is obsolete and is supported only for backward compatibility. To get or set the long time format, use the aqEnvironment.GetLocaleInfo and aqEnvironment.SetLocaleInfo functions with LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT as the second parameter.

JavaScript, JScript

var long_time_format = aqEnvironment.GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT);


long_time_format = aqEnvironment.GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT)


long_time_format = aqEnvironment.GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT)
Log.Message long_time_format


long_time_format := aqEnvironment.GetLocaleInfo(LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT);

C++Script, C#Script

var long_time_format = aqEnvironment["GetLocaleInfo"](LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, LOCALE_STIMEFORMAT);

Or, if you want to process time values using the locale settings, use the methods of the aqDateTime object. They use locale-specific time formats when parsing values.
