I need to input a time in a variable (eq 13:45) and calculate a new time bij adding some hours/minutes. Is there a way to format a time variable ? Other ideas ?

TI-Basic or Python?

 

In either case: enter it as a string, parse looking for the colon (:) and extract the hours & minutes, do the mathematics, then display in a time format.

 

Or… ask for the hours and minutes using separate input statements.

Thanks John. I was hoping for an easier way but will give it a try.

If you are up for it… in Python you can create a time class that handles all the work for you. That would be interesting!

Just don’t bump into the Python time module (included).

I created a class that accepts date and time in dd/mm/yyyy , hh:mm format and a function to calculate a date/time difference and was very happy until……I discovered that there seems to be no possibility to input a string with a colon ?
Also can’t import a string from the OS with recall_value. Input date works fine, using the divide symbol (/).
Any ideas ?

I don’t see an issue with a string containing a colon. Care to send me your file?

My problem is just a simple time=input(“enter time : “). Can’t find the colon to enter something like 22:55. Maybe I missed a shortcut ? Also tried to enter the time in a spreadsheet cell but than I can’t export it to python as it seems there is no function to export a string from OS to python….
