GetDateFormatEx

4 posts in this topic

Hi.  I'm trying to use GetDateFormatEx with difficulty.  Can you see where the problem lies?  I think I've tried just about combination of parameters etc. that I could think of short of taking a shotgun to my computer.

Func GetDateFormatEx()
  Local Const $date_str = DllStructCreate("wchar[80]")

  Local Const $date_format = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "GetDateFormatEx",  "wstr",     "en-US",                      _
                                                                                "dword",    NULL,                         _
                                                                                "struct*",  NULL,                         _
                                                                                "wstr",     NULL,                         _
                                                                                "struct*",  $date_str,                    _
                                                                                "int",      DllStructGetSize($date_str),  _
                                                                                "wstr",     '')[0]

  ConsoleWrite("Last Error Message: "               & _WinAPI_GetLastErrorMessage()    & _
               "Last Error: "                       & _WinAPI_GetLastError()           & @CRLF & _
               "date_format: "                      & $date_format                     & @CRLF & _
               "DllStructGetData($date_str, 1): "   & DllStructGetData($date_str, 1)   & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc

#include <WinAPILocale.au3>

ConsoleWrite(_WinAPI_GetDateFormat($LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT, 0, 0, 'dddd') & @CRLF)

The only difference I can see is the function call.

Try this:

GetDateFormatEx()

Func GetDateFormatEx()
  Local $aRet = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "GetDateFormatEx",  "wstr",     "en-US", _ ; "da-DK", "de-DE", "en-US", "sv-SE", http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/langcode.htm
                                                                   "dword",    2,       _ ; 2 = DATE_LONGDATE
                                                                   "struct*",  0,       _
                                                                   "ptr",      0,       _ ; Note that the parameters 2 and 4 depend on each other
                                                                   "wstr",     "",      _
                                                                   "int",      2048,    _
                                                                   "ptr",      0)

  ConsoleWrite("@error:   " & @error   & @CRLF & _
               "$aRet[0]: " & $aRet[0] & @CRLF & _
               "$aRet[5]: " & $aRet[5] & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc
