Disabling specific day in DatePicker

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have a kind of weird problem. 

I would like to have a "GUICtrlCreateDate" element on my gui for date selection. 

But i don't want my users to pick "Sundays". I know that i can put an error if sundays picked. But i would like to know that it could be disabled totaly? Like grayed out or sth.

Thanks in advance.

This is as close to what you want as I could get.

#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <DateTimeConstants.au3>
#include <StructureConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>


local $gui010   =   guicreate('Date Time Example',300,300)
local $DTctl    =   GUICtrlCreateDate('',20,20,200,20)
local $status   =   guictrlcreatelabel('',20,280,260,20,$SS_SUNKEN)


while 1
    switch guigetmsg()
        case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        case $DTctl
            ConsoleWrite('date selected = ' & guictrlread($DTctl)  & @LF)

func WM_NOTIFY($hWnd, $iMsg, $iwParam, $ilParam)
    Local $hWndFrom, $iIDFrom, $iCode, $tNMDATETIMECHANGE

    $tNMDATETIMECHANGE  = dllstructcreate($tagNMDATETIMECHANGE, $ilParam)
    $hWndFrom           = HWnd(DllStructGetData($tNMDATETIMECHANGE, "hWndFrom"))
    $iIDFrom            = DllStructGetData($tNMDATETIMECHANGE, "IDFrom")
    $iCode              = DllStructGetData($tNMDATETIMECHANGE, "Code")
    local $DTM_SETFORMAT_ = 0x1032 ; $DTM_SETFORMATW

    switch $hWndFrom
        case guictrlgethandle($DTctl)
            switch $iCode
                case $DTN_DATETIMECHANGE
                    if dllstructgetdata($tNMDATETIMECHANGE, 'DOW') = 0 then
                        guictrlsetdata($status,'  Invalid Selection - Re-pick Date')
                        GUICtrlSendMsg($DTctl, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, '  SUNDAY_INVALID - REPICK')
                case $DTN_DROPDOWN
                    guictrlsendmsg($DTctl, $DTM_SETFORMAT_, 0, "dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy")

    return $GUI_RUNDEFMSG

thank you very much for your time,

i've implemented something like that to my script.

I was wondering that if i can disable selecting this day in calendar. Appearently i can't. IF anyone knows another solution i'm accepting that it can't be done better than this.
