Hi,

   

I just wanted to set a RTC to European standards for DST which is

   

DSTStart : Last Sunday in March

   

DSTEnd : Last Sunday in October

   

Since I can set the week with RTC_WriteDSTStartWeek(Week), there is not a chance to set Week to the LAST week.

   

Besides calculating the number of Sundays for a given month myself, I would rather prefer to specify "5" for the week and let the RTC adjust it to the correct value which would be 4 or 5 (There are never more than 5 Sundays in a month and never less than 4)

   

Is there a chance that the RTC-Module will be updated to reflect the European Standards as of 2000/84/EG ORDERING of DAYLIGHT-SAVING-TIME?

   

THX

Bob,

   

there is a chance, yes. There have been quite some changes in daylight savings time over the last view years and I would be surprised if we wouldn't see more of these changes. I will make sure that the team responsible for the upcoming specifications gets your input!

        LOL you have Problems! xD I'd be glad if my RTC would be running! I've placed the component, I call RTC_1_Start() and I enabled the XTAL 32kHz clock ind the Clock Editor. Do I Need to do something else? Call something else or connect something? The clock just Shows 0:0 with ReadMinute/Second. thanks!

        If you have a new problem, please open a new thread. Its not that hard...   
Hijacking a two-year-old thread with a new problem will reduce your chances of getting a good answer (its just less visible).   
Thanks!

If you right click your RTC component, pick "Find example project", you can add

   

the example project to your workspace, or open it in a new workspace. Either way

   

you can  cut and paste from the example project to get your up and running.

   

 

   

Regards, Dana.
