Best way to see if file/folder creation is today?

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to figure out the best way to see if a file/folder's creation date is today. This is what I'm currently using.

#include <Date.au3>
$aFileTime = FileGetTime(@WindowsDir, 1)
If StringCompare($aFileTime[0] & "/" & $aFileTime[1] & "/" & $aFileTime[2], _NowCalcDate()) = 0 Then
     MsgBox(0, "", "created today")
EndIf

Is there a better way than that? I played with _DateDiff() as well, but using days it was matching stuff that occured within the last 24 hours and not actually today.

You could do this.

_CreatedToday(@WindowsDir)

Func _CreatedToday($varFileFolder)
    $aFileTime = FileGetTime($varFileFolder, 1)
    If $aFileTime[0]&$aFileTime[1]&$aFileTime[2] = @YEAR&@MON&@MDAY Then 
        MsgBox(0, $varFileFolder, "Created today.")
        Return 1
    EndIf
EndFunc

edit: made into func.

I got so hung up on trying to put the FileGetTime return back into a date format that I forgot I could just compare them using the built-in macros for year, month, and day. I like the function idea. Thanks.
