date and time script

Is it possible to setup a default timezone that is not Canada in the script? how?

also... I've asked for the time in Rome and it should have took the right timezone i think... because the value is closer to the real one but anyway is 2 hours behind the real time... where does it get the time from?

 

Thank you very much

You can change the Watch script, or create your own to change the timezone for the current time.

For example,
Template("The time in Rome is {Date.setTimeZone(Date.time(), "CET")}.")

When you ask "what is the time in *", to change the timezone you need to give a valid timezone name or code. Otherwise it will answer the GMT time.

For example,
"what is the time in CET?"

Would be for Rome.

Is it possible that the timezone is broken/stuck to EDT when parsing AIML to grab the date?

Testing the following code (uploaded as script to keep AIML functions):

<category>
    <pattern># time #</pattern>
    <template>
        <date locale="de_CH" timezone="-1" format="%c" />
    </template>
</category>


It returns:

Wed Sep 21 05:48:29 EDT 2016 

.. so timezone="" doesn't seem to be having any effect.

The AIML spec only defines the format option for the date tag. The locale and timezone options are PandoraBot extensions.

I will look into adding support for them to our AIML support.

You can also use Self code inside AIML.

<template>{Date.setTimeZone(Date.time(), "CET")}</template>

I have added support for these to our AIML support and Self.

The fix should be in the next website update, probably next week.

I could fix it with this edition on TimeAndDate bot script file

state timeState {
case #is goto timeState;
case #it goto timeState;
case #what goto timeState;
case "right" goto timeState;
case "now" goto timeState;
case "in" goto timeInState;
case punctuation goto timeState;

answer Template("The time is {Date.setTimeZone(Date.time(), "GTM-3")}.");
}
