Time Function

Hello,

Can anyone think of a short piece of code which does he following:
-------------------------------------
if Current Time is LESS THAN 19:30 then Write: Open For Business

Else

Write: Sorry - Closed
-------------------------------------
and
-------------------------------------
if Current Time is Between 12:00 and 14:00 then Write: Away to Lunch
Else
Write: Open For Business
-------------------------------------

It's actually for a call centre app, just the above scenario is much easier
to explain. Any help appreciated!!!

Regards,

Gary.

This explanation is contradictory, but I think I understand what you mean.
If you wish to write code, you need to learn to clearly state your
requirements. Try it this way:

if time later than 19:30 write "Sorry - Closed"
if time between 12:00 and 14:00 then write "Away to Lunch"
otherwise, write "Open For Business"

Assuming you wish this done in vbscript, then this should do it for you:

<%
dim t
t=now() - date()
't now contains just the current time
if t #19:30# then
Response.Write "Sorry - Closed"
Elseif t >= #12:00# and t <= #14:00# then
Response.Write "Away to Lunch"
Else
Response.Write "Open For Business"
End if
%>

What have you done sofar yourself?
Not tried it yet, rather than spend 3 hours trying to work it out, I thought
I would check for some help here. I always eventually manage to get things
working on my own if I get no replies, but mostly people are happy to help.

Thanks for the reply.

Dear lameass,
>but mostly people are happy to help.
So, apparently you don't understand the difference between "helping" and
"doing it for you"?
