    I needed a way to determine in a script whether to run between sunset and sunrise and found that the easiest method (unless someone has something different) was to create an Enable Control group with two levels.

    Set up a scheduler with two events, one for setting the Enable Group to 255 on sunset and the other setting to 0 when the start time equals sunrise.

    Now, from any script, just read the state of the enable control value.

    Just wish I could put a clock on the page though :-(


    Cheers,
