Parameter Description
value The number of seconds to be converted.

Return Value

Text value of the form dd:hh:mm:ss. For example, 06:06:55:58.

For durations less than one day, the dd: is omitted.

For durations less than one hour, the hh: is also omitted.

For durations less than one minute, the mm: is also omitted.


To find the difference between the created date and time and the last modified date and time, use the following example:

$(SecondsToTime(DateDiff("second", ToString(LastModDateTime), ToString(CreatedDateTime))))

In this example, the DateDiff() function is used to compute the difference in seconds between the value of the LastModDateTime and CreatedDateTime times. The function then converts the seconds to a text value in the dd:hh:mm:ss format.
