Time Settings dialog

The Time Settings dialog is used to control how dates and times are displayed in GMS. The dialog is reached through the Edit | Time menu command. Time data can be encountered in various places in GMS such as:

  • Transient datasets
  • MODFLOW stress period input
  • XY Series input

The Time Settings dialog can be used to format dates and times using the computer's regional settings, or using a number of other formats.

Date/Time vs. Relative

Time data that has an associated reference time—a real calendar date and time—can be displayed as dates/times. Time data that lacks a reference time can only displayed as relative times which are simple scalar values (0.0, 2.0, 3.0 etc).
