Converting VBScript's TimeSerial Function


Windows PowerShell


Definition: Returns a Variant of subtype Date containing the time for a specific hour, minute, and second.

TimeSerial

Like DateSerial, this is a function that is in no danger of being overused. However, if you want to pass in values for the hours, minutes, and seconds and get back a time value (as opposed to a date-time value) the following command will do the trick:


$a = get-date -h 17 -mi 10 -s 45 -displayhint time

Note. As you probably figured out for yourself, the -h parameter represents the hours, the -mi parameter represents the minutes, and the -s parameter represents the seconds. Values for the hours are based on a 24-hour clock.

When you run this command and then echo back the value of $a you should get the following:


5:10:45 PM
