No. It is not converted to UTC or local time in any way.

The datatype 'Date' in Gambas is a point in time, aka just a number.
It's for example 2022.11.16 13:10:00 stored as floating point.

There's no additional information at all. So there is no further
information about a timezone or whether it is UTC.

Your program must decide whether it considers it being UTC or any local
time. I think that's pretty simple and ingenious, by the way.

Alles Gute
