    windows (ugh) clock reading - HELP!

    Hey, I was hoping to get some help on this subject.

    Im building a calender program in VB v6, and im at the point where I need to read the time from the windows clock situated in the bottom right corner of screen...
    Does anybody know of a way I can recieve the date from the clock...?
    Then I would check these parameters against the records stored and hey-presto the calender would bring up the correct data... ect, ect.

    Can YOU help?

    The standard way is the time() function. Windows also has other functions -- GetSystemTime, I think -- that you can use too. You should doublecheck with MSDN.
