    Minutes until sunrise

    Hi, I'm looking for an Immediate Script Command to give me the number of minutes from now to sunrise, i.e something like hs.speak(time.of.sunrise - time.now).

    TIA
    Michael

    Here you go:

    Code:
    &nhs.speak(CInt(hs.SunriseDt.subtract(dateTime.Now).TotalMinutes))

      Awesome! Thanks, Jon.

      This is to be run at my normal wakeup time. It does two things: 1) let's me know how much time I have before I actually HAVE to get up and let the cat out and 2) well, when the sun's coming up.

      Final version:

      &nhs.speak("Sunrise is in " + cStr(CInt(hs.SunriseDt.subtract(dateTime.Now).TotalMinutes)) + " minutes.")

      Thanks again!
      Regards,
      Michael

        I tried that myself. The first time I got "Sunrise is in minus 946 minutes."
        But a minute later, I got..."Sunrise is in minus 947 minutes."

        Something seems a bit off.....

          Seems correct to me. As sunrise has passed, the minus value will increase as time passes during the day. It will go positive again after midnight.

            Yes, this will only report a positive number if the time now is after midnight and before sunrise which is fine for my purposes.

              Yup. Figured that out after I posted. Then went to write a new post, and my Internet went out. It's been that kind of year.
