Getting current sim time (ZULU)

#1
Hi developers,

although I have already successfully written a few application using the SimConnect API, I am currently stuck and maybe overseeing the obvious... Using SimConnect (for P3Dv4) I would like to query the current zulu time of the simulation. I have seen that this can be accessed using environment variables (e.g. ZULU TIME, ZULU DAY OF MONTH, etc.) but according to the documentation (http://www.prepar3d.com/SDKv4/sdk/references/variables/variables_overview.html), they are not accessible by SimConnect (only simulation variables are).

Probably somebody can help me out here...

Thanks a lot for your help and best regards,
Holger

Ok seem that I am blind as well - just two threads below there was a discussion regarding environment variables. I could swear I was using the search for "ZULU" before posintg. I will try it out and report back. Sorry.
