Anyone ever successfully add the system date to a skin?

There are objects in std.mi for it but they return garbage. The code below returns "11/31/69" in the text object, regardless of what the actual system date is. Clock functions work perfectly.

PHP Code:
#include "..\..\..\lib\std.mi"

Global container main;
Timer clockTimer;
Text clockTextdateText;
int sysmonthsysdaysysyear;

System.onScriptLoaded () {
Group clockgroup getContainer("main").getLayout("normal");
clockText clockgroup.findObject("SystemClock");
dateText clockgroup.findObject("SystemDate");
clockTimer = new Timer;
clockTimer.setDelay (50);

clockTimer.onTimer () {
string longtime integerToLongTimegetTimeOfDay() );
int datetime;
string hoursminssecsampm;
hours gettoken(longtime,":",0);
mins gettoken(longtime,":",1);
secs gettoken(longtime,":",2);
ampm=" PM";
  if (
stringtointeger(hours) >= 13) {
hours integertostring(stringtointeger(hours) - 12);
  } else {
    if (
stringtointeger(hours) != 12) {
ampm=" AM";
  if (
stringtointeger(hours) == 0hours "12";
longtime hours ":" mins;
clockText.setText (longtime);
dateText.setText(integertostring(System.getDateMonth(sysmonth)) + "/" integertostring(System.getDateDay(sysday)) + "/" integertostring(System.getDateYear(sysyear)));

System.onScriptUnloading () {
delete clockTimer;

If you want an example, install ClassicPro and look in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Plugins\ClassicPro\engine\scripts\cproabout.m".

But from what I can see is that your using the function incorrectly.

Here are two example of how you get the year and day of year:

So your...
Global int sysmonth, sysday, sysyear;

...line won't be used and all those int's must be replaced by System.getDate() in your code.

Didn't test it again now so might be wrong

ClassicPro© v2.01 : This plugin allows you to use cPro skins in Winamp. ClassicPro skins are all SUI skins and loads very quickly. ClassicPro skins is even easier to skin than Winamp Classic skins. A new layout have been added since version 2.

Yep, that did it. One of those things I wish were spelled out a little better in std.mi

PHP Code:
dateText.setText(integertostring(System.getDateMonth(System.getDate()) + 1) + "/" integertostring(System.getDateDay(System.getDate())) + "/" integertostring(System.getDateYear(System.getDate()) + 1900));
