Hi guys,

I want to calculate difference (numer of days) between two dates - the date set in DatePicker and the Current Date.
Below you can see the blocks I use to set dates:

Current Date

Picked Date

I tried to use simple equation: ShowSelectedDate - ShowCurrentDate, but... :(

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Dawid

Many ways to do this, I like to convert to milliseconds to do the calculation
You will need to add a clock component (in Sensors) for the additional blocks

Be careful, your timezone may get in the way if your difference is close to your timezone difference.
Cheers, Ghica.
