For questions about using Classic.

Post » Tue Jan 24, 2012 2:16 am

hello I've made a clock in construct classic. my problem is how can I set the time to 12 hour format instead of military 24 hour time format?

for example if its 7:45 my clock shows 19:45 how can I make it 12 hour format? I'm using system to do the date and time.

Thank you

from WikiPedia.

Modulo is the remainder after division.

e.g.

9 % 3 = 0

4 % 3 = 1

In Tulamide's example, if hour = 14

then hour = 14 % 12 = 2.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
