Does `echo -t` parse server-time?

In the following event:


Code:
on ^*:KICK:#: {
  echo -t Something happened!
}



is server-time parsed? It does not currently appear to be that case - but I have no idea how to confirm this accurately.

Nope! The -t switch of /echo prepends the $timestamp at the text you want to echo.
And i believe this is not the right sub forum for this post! But nw..

It's the right forum, -t (and $timestamp) should (to my beliefs) parse the timestamp normal (i.e. non-scripting) also would.

Echo and $timestamp should have nothing at all to do with server time. $msgstamp refers to server time.

Also <-t> works only if (ALT+O or Menu/Tools/Options) IRC\Messages: Timestamp events enabled. Edit box should be filled, eg. [HH:nn].

Regards.

Seems like I'm looking to use
Code:
$time($msgstamp, $timestampfmt)

then, thanks.
