Using Global DateTime

I am trying to compare two Global DateTime values and the syntax I'm using isn't working.

Example:

[loop]
wait G_TimeDate value >= A_StartTime
LED state = on
sleep 1000
goto loop

This is the error i get:

[ERROR: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.]

I also tried using the global variable datetime element.  I tried making one called TimeNow with the Variable Type "DateTime" and when I try to use it, I get errors. 

For example, when I tried doing 

new datetime o_t
new datetime othertime
o_t = TimeNow datetime
othertime = now
print o_t
print othertime

it doesn't work, and I get a "no property found with name datetime".  Commenting out the global parts, the "othertime" datetime variable prints fine.

However if I have TimeNow set to a Value (5) instead of DateTime I can do 

new value o_t
o_t = TimeNow value
print o_t

and it is fine, printing out "5". 

So I guess I'm confused on the use of datetime elements, or there is something else up.

Yes, this seems not to work. Let me investigate.

Thanks, but there is no reference to a global here. That variable is a local one (to the script it’s in).
