Forcing Multiple Digit Numbers

7 posts in this topic

I just have a (hopefully) quick question.

How would i go about forcing Autoit to recognize the number 1 as 01, 2 as 02 and so forth.

I currently have a script that is pulling from a database for time's, modifying it and then searching for records in a timeframe.

For example here is the code where i would need it.

The problem being that when i subtract 5 from 10 i get 5 not 05.

I could always modify the numbers before hand then Concatenate the 0 in front if it's from 0 to 9. But i hope there was a much simpler way.

$TIMEtemp = $DBFr.GetRows() ; Returns data from sql command into 2d array
    $time = StringSplit($Timetemp[0][0], ":") ; Take 12:34:56 and splits it into an array.
    $TimeBef = $time[1] &":"& $time[2] &":"& ($time[3] - 5) ; Modifies the first time to 5 seconds before
    $TimeAft = $time[1] &":"& $time[2] &":"& ($time[3] + 5) ; Modifies the first time to 5 seconds after
    $timetemp[0][1] = StringTrimRight($TIMETEMP[0][1], 6) ; This is removing the excess numbers from the date field
    $timetemp[0][1] = _StringInsert($timetemp[0][1], "/", 4) ; The following 4 lines reformat it to a proper date
    $timetemp[0][1] = _StringInsert($timetemp[0][1], "/", 7)
    $TEMPS = _StringExplode($timetemp[0][1], "/")
    $timetemp[0][1] = $TEMPS[1]&"/"&$TEMPS[2]&"/"&$TEMPS[0]

Ahh yes, and also looking at the code i allow it to go into the negatives instead of looping back. i can fix that fairly easily.

Thanks for any help!

StringFormat is your friend here - here is a simple example:

$number = 5
MsgBox(0, "", StringFormat("%02d", $number))

SNMP_UDF ... for SNMPv1 and v2c so far, GetBulk and a new example script

Maybe it would be much easier and faster to add your conditions in a WHERE clause of the SELECT query to retrieve only the rows of interest.

I am going to use enaiman's solution here.

This is needed FOR the where clause in the sql statement. The SQL Statements for my time fields don't count 12:12:1 and 12:12:01 as the same thing, thus failing to pull any data in between my two times.

Thanks!

Then the actual root cause is the wrong formatting of the dates at INSERT/UPDATE time.

If you own the DB and can manage it then it would be convenient to update date/times already stored into ISO format (or integer timestamp format or anything reliable) to make the whole issue disappear forever.

Agree'd, while we do own the database we do not have the source code for the software that also interfaces with it. So i have to manage the time in this way the pull the data.

It's a pity!

Good luck anyway.
