Setting datetimepicker date

Recommended Posts


Hi All

I have a problem automating an app made in VB.Net.

The problem lies with the DTP control. Using the _GUICtrlDTP_SetSystemTime function, i can set the date as whatever I want but the date being saved internally is still sysdate. :D

I am providing a simple UI to illustrate my problem. Its a simple input box with a DTP field and a button. When u push the button, the date currently selected is shown in a messagebox.

If you want to doublecheck for malicious code, open the sln file in your code designer.

The path to the exe is "\Test\Test\bin\Debug\Test.exe"

#include <GuiDateTimePicker.au3>

Dim $tDate[7] = [False, 2042, 02, 19, 0, 0, 0]

_GUICtrlDTP_SetSystemTime($hDTP, $tDate)

Everytime i run the autoit code, the test dtp is set to 19/2/2042 but when i press the button, the date shown is still sysdate. any ideas?

thanks and regards

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
