Check Timestamp before updating

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey All,

What is the most efficient way to make sure that the time format I'm getting from my input box is acceptable before updating into my database with the script.  Right now I just started with my string length and would need to build several arguments in.  The column in my database is in yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss format so I want to ensure it's correct since I wrote some reports with calculations that I don't want to error out.  Is there a function or easier way to check the format?

Case $update_but
                    $new_time = ControlGetText($punch_correct_gui, "", $edit_time_input)
                    $new_desc = StringUpper(StringStripWS(ControlGetText($punch_correct_gui, "", $time_event_combo),3))

                    If $new_desc = "" or $new_time = "" Then
                        MsgBox("", "Warning", "Can not update blanks")
                    ElseIf StringLen($new_time) <> 19  Then
                        MsgBox("", "Warning", "Incorrect Time Format"&@CR&"Format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss")
                    ElseIf $new_desc = "DAY_START" OR $new_desc = "DAY_END" OR $new_desc = "LUNCH_START" OR $new_desc = "LUNCH_END" Then
                        ;EXECUTE IF ALL CHECKS AR GOOD
                        MsgBox("", "", "GOOD")
                    Else
                        MsgBox("", "Warning", $new_desc& " is invalid Punch Desc")
                    EndIf

Where is the input box getting it's data from? Could you use a Date control instead?


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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
