    How to read from date and time picker?

    Hi,

    How can I read from the date and time picker control? My DT picker is set to only show the time with the spin control. I need seperate data for the hour and minutes selected.
    I've read through the MSDN description but I'm too noob to understand it.

    Something like the code below:
    Code:
    SYSTEMTIME st = { 0 };
    
    if (DateTime_GetSystemtime(hwndYourDateTimeControl, &st) == GDT_VALID)
    {
      // Hour selected is in st.wHour
      // Minute selected is in st.wMinute
    }

    Ah, thanks.

    Could you also tell me what would be the best way to set a timer of some sort to trigger an alarm at certain point? I've tried using the CreateWaitableTimer function but it locks up the program until it triggers.

    If your program has a window, you can use the SetTimer function.
