Hi all,

I'm using this code to display the current time for our location on our website:


<?php
        date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');
        $theTimeIs = getdate(time());
            $theHour = $theTimeIs['hours'];
$theMinute = $theTimeIs['minutes']; // make minutes under 10 show two digits
            $theSecond = $theTimeIs['seconds'];
        if($theHour > 12){
            $theHour = $theHour - 12;
            $dn = "PM";
        } else {
            $dn = "AM";
        }

echo "$theHour:$theMinute:$theSecond $dn";
?>

It works great except for one small detail. If the time is 3:04:02, it is displayed as 3:4:2 which, of course, is very odd looking. So I corrected it as follows:

<?php
        date_default_timezone_set('America/Los_Angeles');
        $theTimeIs = getdate(time());
            $theHour = $theTimeIs['hours'];
            if (strlen ($theTimeIs['minutes']) < 2) {
                                $theMinute = "0" . $theTimeIs['minutes'];
                                } else {
                                $theMinute = $theTimeIs['minutes'];
                                }
            if (strlen ($theTimeIs['seconds']) < 2) {
                                $theSecond = "0" . $theTimeIs['seconds'];
                                } else {
                                $theSecond = $theTimeIs['seconds'];
                                }
        if($theHour > 12){
            $theHour = $theHour - 12;
            $dn = "PM";
        } else {
            $dn = "AM";
        }

echo "$theHour:$theMinute:$theSecond $dn";
?>

        It works, but is there a better way to do it?

Thanks,
Frank
