## Y ## What is the Power Fx Time Function?

The Power Fx Time function is a time-related function that can be used to perform calculations and manipulations on time values. It is part of the Power Fx language, which is a formula language used in Power Apps. The Power Fx Time function is used to work with time values in a more flexible and efficient manner than is possible using traditional functions.

## How to Use the Power Fx Time Function

To use the Power Fx Time function, you first need to understand the syntax. The syntax of the Power Fx Time function is as follows:

`Time(❰hour❱,❰minute❱,❰second❱)`

This function takes three arguments: the hour, the minute, and the second. These arguments can be expressed as numbers, or as expressions that evaluate to numbers.

For example, if you want to create a time value that represents 3:45 PM, you would use the following formula:

`Time(15,45,0)`

This will create a time value that represents 3:45 PM.

## Common Uses of the Power Fx Time Function

The Power Fx Time function can be used to perform a range of time-related calculations and manipulations. Here are some common uses of the Power Fx Time function:

If you want to add two time values together, you can use the Power Fx Time function. For example, if you want to add 1 hour and 30 minutes to a time value, you would use the following formula:

`Time(1,30,0) + ❰time value❱`

This will add 1 hour and 30 minutes to the time value.

### Subtracting Time Values

If you want to subtract two time values, you can use the Power Fx Time function. For example, if you want to subtract 1 hour and 30 minutes from a time value, you would use the following formula:

`❰time value❱ – Time(1,30,0)`

This will subtract 1 hour and 30 minutes from the time value.

### Converting Time Values

If you want to convert a time value to a different format, you can use the Power Fx Time function. For example, if you want to convert a time value to a string that represents hours and minutes, you would use the following formula:

`Text(❰time value❱,”hh:mm”)`

This will convert the time value to a string that represents hours and minutes.

The Power Fx Time function is a powerful tool that can be used to perform a range of time-related calculations and manipulations. By understanding how to use this function effectively, app developers can create sophisticated applications that are capable of handling complex time-related tasks.
