How do i catch a TIME variable overflow?

Hi, so i use
RemainingTime := 000000T + ROUND((ProcessingDuration / NoOfProgressed ) * ( NoOfRecs - NoOfProgressed ),1)

in my ProcessBar to roughly calculate the remaining time. This can give my an overflow issue during debugging because the max value i believe is 23:59:59.999?
is there a way to catch that error without casting the ProcessingDuration to an int first and calculating the time in an integer?

(obviously the same goes for the ProcessingDuration)

    No you can't and you really shouldn't be using a Time variable for this. Instead use a Duration variable, you can find more info on this here...

    First off thanks for the answer. The reason i didn't do it is of the presentation. the duration output would be something like "124 days 4 hours 30 minutes 1 second 114 milliseconds" ... would i have to parse and reformat this manually?

    EDIT: i found a solution which works for me , i can catch the error by first checking the remaining time in a duration variable , then if its >= 86400000 displaying that , and if not i will convert it to time.
