To learn a little bit more, I decided to make a record helper for the TDateTime type. It's a very simple record helper which pretty much calls the existing date time functions that are in the DateUtils unit. One benefit is that it allows you to assign and manipulate datetime values very easily.
+1. Download the DateTimeHelper unit.
+2. Add DateTimeHelper unit to your project.
+3. Add DateTimeHelper to the uses clause in the implementation section of your unit.
+And that's it! You now should be able to see the additional methods on TDateTime types via CodeInsight in your Delphi XE3 IDE.
+*Note:* The limitation of helper records is that only one helper is active/available per class type. If you have more than one helper for a class type then it is the last one defined in the uses clause that will be active.
