[mrt] [mst] [mtt] : Moonrise, Moonset and Moon Transit Times

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The [mrt], [mst] and [mtt] (moonrise, moonset and moon transit times), Moon Tokens are used to display the time at which the moon rises, transits and sets every day.

 

[mrth], [msth] and [mtth] can be used to display only the hour part of the time.

[mrtm], [mstm] and [mttm] can be used to display only the minutes part of the time.

 

These last 2 tokens can be useful when you wish to display the hours and minutes using different font attributes.

 

Use the Moon Options prpoperty to specify how these times are displayed (for example: show minutes only, show hours in AM/PM format or 24 hours format, ...). Note that on some days the moon will not rise or it will not set (never both). This occurs on average every 30 days, You should make sure that you specify what text, if any, to display on these occasions, using the if no time, display setting of Moon Options.

 

To determine the source of the times displayed, specify the appropriate Moon Data Source in the property of the same name. If more than one source is selected, you can specify which source to use by appending a digit that corresponds to that source's position in the list of selected sources.

 

 

In the example above, you would use the tokens [mrt1] and [mst1] to display moonrise and moonset for Oslo, and the tokens [mrt2] and [mst2] to display moonrise and moonset for Kristiansand. The suffixes h and m described at the top of this topic can also be used, and are placed between the token and the digit (for example : [mrth1] and [mrtm1]).
