    ASP % equivalent and Date() object

    Hi everyone, does anyone know the VBScript equivalent of client-side JavaScript's % which gives the remander when one number is divided by another, so for example 5%3 would equal 2.

    Also, I am using ASP's built in Date() object but since the server is a few hours behind GMT it sometimes gets it wrong, so is there a way to correct for this? Is there a way to do this for the time as well?
    Even better, is it possible to detect what time zone a user is in and how far ahead or behind they are? This would mean that the times and dates are always correct for everyone.

    For modulus, VBScript uses the mod operator.
    Code:
    dim x
    x = 10 mod 3 'should return 1.
    As for the date/time issue, take a look at this article. http://www.webwizguide.info/asp/faq/...e_settings.asp

    Regards,
    Andrew Buntine.

    Thanks for the mod operator, but the dates and times thing isn't quite what I need:

    Please note that this will only change the format the dates, times, and currencies are shown in and will not move dates and times to another time zone. eg. mm/dd/yyyy to dd/mm/yyyy.
    I have already sorted out the dd/mm/yyyy thing, I just need to change the time zone to GMT (or if possible, change the time zone to match the time zone that the user is in).

    You'd have to find out what the server time offset is and then you can use the dateadd function

    Small VB example:
    Code:
    MsgBox DateAdd("h", 1, Now)
    As far as finding out the time of the browser, you would have to use javascript (or jscript, javascript's bastard brother).

    I could find the time on the user's clock very easily with JavaScript, it's just that that would involve a refresh of the page so that the script could get the info transferred to it.
    Then I would have to start using Session variables (which apparently are a bad thing) to keep that information available for the script to use.
    It's a real shame that there is no server-side way to obtain that stuff.

    Ah well, back to work on the script for me. Thanks guys.

    We could call it LavaScript.
