 As at baseline


returns a string of the hours/minutes time part the aDate date/time expression, which may simply be a date-type attribute value. For instance:

$MyString = time($StartDate); 

If the time of $StartTime is 14:20 then $MyString will be "14:20". Passing to a string will elide leading zeroes, so a time of 05:08 will return "5:08".

To get seconds as well as hours and minutes, use the .format() or format() operator on aDate with an appropriate formatting string.

Note that the time() operator does not ignore seconds in the source data.
